The Inquisition and Judaism

Excerpt from The Inquisition and Judaism: A Sermon Addressed to Jewish Martyrs, on the Occasion of an Auto Da Fe at Lisbon, 1705 In the following pages will be found a Sermon delivered by the Archbishop of Cranganor to a number of Israelites, hapless victims of the Inquisition, preparatory to the unhallowed celebration of an Auto da Fe. Of the unfortunate beings compelled to listen to the archbishop, a majority were under sentence of making their selection between Apostasy and Death, and one amongst the number, having offended a second time against the Inquisition, is, agreeably to all inference, irrevocably condemned to perish by the flames. And yet it is before such defenceless creatures, whose tongues are bridled, that the prelate affects a vast display of erudition; it is such unhappy men whom he assails with a verbose and diffuse harangue, professing to enter into a free and fair discussion on the merits of the respective creeds of Judaism and Christianity! Such a flagrant outrage on the unalienable rights of conscience - such a solemn farce, enacted in the name, and under the assumed sanction of the God of mercy and love - cannot fail to awaken in every humane and thinking mind sentiments of abhorrence and disgust.
