Why Did The Inquisition Ban Certain Books?: A Case Study from Portugal (Paperback)
You may have heard about the fact the Inquisition banned many books, but why?
Taking advantage of the Portuguese example of the Cat logo de Livros que se Pro bem Nestes Reinos, published in this country in the year of 1581, and which is essentially a local edition of the famous Index Librorum Prohibitorum, this book explores the reasons why the Inquisition forbade the reading of certain books. It provides succinct information on each of the books presented in this particular catalogue, along with the potential reasons why they were forbidden.
