Sarah (sarahj) | 8 comments Hi -
Can someone recommend a good non-fiction book about the Spanish Inquisition? By "good" I mean readable and not an academic crammer.
Thanks,
Sarah

Thanks for the tip Lilly. I have been very interested in pursuing this topic since seeing an exhibition of Fransicso Goya's art etchings at our NSW Art Gallery. The reviews seem to back your selection - the book is added to my "must buys" list. Cheers

Sarah (sarahj) | 8 comments Thanks - it was from Amazon that I got the $35 price. The lowest-priced used copy was $31! Think I'll be scouring used book stores.
cheers
