VATICAN CITY (AP) – The Vatican’s doctrine office, once responsible for the Inquisition, the Index of Prohibited Books and famous for its centuries of secrecy, is reminding scholars that it’s actually a fairly accessible and transparent place.

The Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith is hosting an academic conference starting Tuesday marking the 20th anniversary of its historic decision to open its archives to scholars.

The conference, “The Roman Inquisition and its Archives,” will feature dozens of academic presentations about the scholarship that has emerged, including a whole session on how the Inquisition and banned book list have been portrayed over time in popular storytelling, media, cinema and advertising.

The Roman Inquisition began in 1542 as part of the Catholic Church’s counter-reformation against Protestantism, and prosecuted people for heresy and other doctrinal crimes.

One comment on “Vatican’s Inquisition, Index of Banned Books subject of Vatican Conference hosted by the Roman Inquisition’s successor – The Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith

  1. It is not easy to keep in mind Dr. Roberto Dr Mattei’s precise admonition to not refer to the “Bergoglian Church” as if it were an entity distinct from the Roman Church founded on St. Peter.
    /
    Not easy. At. All.
    /
    We’ll need to come up with a distinct theological definition of the Church when riotous paganizers, sodomites and communists run amok with their diabolical Revolution.
    /
    Like everything else over the past five years, this “conference” is nothing more than a hunting license for heretics, yahoo’s, Zionistas, perverts and liberal lounge lizards to misrepresent history and the Faith to their adoring fans.
