Stephen Haliczer challenges the traditional view of the Inquisition as a monolithic and all-powerful institution and shows how, by the latter half of the sixteenth century, after decades of practically unchallenged authority, the Inquisition was forced on the defensive as regional institutions reasserted themselves and as royal support for it waned. Even if you are not interested per se in the workings of the Inquision in Valencia (Spain), in early modern times, Prof. Haliczer's study provides an excellent overview of the institutional organization and functions of the Spanish Inquisition since its beginnings in fifteenth-century Castile and Andalucia.

A new departure in the study of the history of the Spanish Inquisition. An original synthesis which is at the same time an institutional history of the Spanish Inquisition in the kingdom of Valencia and a socioreligious history of the kingdom. -Mark D. Meyerson, University of Notre Dame.

Stephen Haliczer has mined rich documentary sources to produce the most comprehensive and enlightening picture yet of the Inquisition in Spain. The kingdom of Valencia occupies a uniquely important place in the history of the Spanish Inquisition because of its large Muslim and Jewish populations and because it was a Catalan kingdom, more or less "occupied" by the despised Castilians who introduced the Inquisition. Haliczer underscores the intensely regional nature of the Valencian tribunal.
