The Birthday of the Office of the Holy Inquisition

It’s a big day in Papist history!

The Roman Inquisition was established by the bull Licet ab initio, July 21, 1542, under the direction of six cardinals. with plenary power to arrest and imprison persons suspected of heresy, and to confiscate their property. The famous General of the Capuchins was to be the first victim of the “Holy Office.”  (Schaff)

The good old days…
