🎧 The Venetian Inquisition
🎧 Not Just the Tudors • 40m
From the sixteenth century through to the end of the eighteenth century, the Venetian government and the Roman Catholic Church jointly established a tribunal to repress heresy throughout the Republic of Venice. The inquisition also intervened in cases of sacrilege, apostasy, prohibited books, superstition, and witchcraft.
In this episode of Not Just the Tudors, Professor Suzannah Lipscomb talks to Professor Nicholas Davidson about his deep research into the Venetian archives, which sheds new light on the nature of religious belief in early modern Italy and the activities the Venetian Inquisition sought to prevent.
For this episode, the Senior Producer was Elena Guthrie. It was researched by Esther Arnott, edited by Thomas Ntinas and produced by Rob Weinberg.
