The Collective Image of the Inquisition is Fake News

(Rome) The historian Anna Foa, former Assistant Professor of Modern History at the Roman University of La Sapienza, recently spoke in the media on the subject of Inquisition, including the essay "Inquisition without a Monster" in the business daily Il Sole 24 Ore. The occasion was a historic conference to open the Vatican Secret Archives 20 years ago.
 
Foa recalled that the latest state of research refutes all "black legends" of the Holy Inquisition. The numerous allegations against the Inquisition have indeed entered into the collective memory, but only in recent times. They have little to do with historical reality.
 
The charges brought against the Church in connection with the Inquisition are genuine "fake news". The collective memory, which obviously has a very clear idea of ​​what the Inquisition was, does not go back to direct knowledge, but is an anti-Catholic construct whose origins date back to the eighteenth century. Many sides have worked on the caricature.
 
The problem, Foa says, is, as with much fake news, that false claims can be "louder" than the truth. This has to do mainly with who controls opinion, but also with the fact that some want to believe the fake news.
 
"Passions and prejudices," Foa said regretfully, "are a myth-factory" that seem to nourish themselves.
So it is in connection with the Inquisition and the Church. The historical facts are now known and researched, but the false stereotypes in people's minds are stronger. The historical reality is so different that it not only is dominated by every form of sensationalism, but suffocates demands for love of truth and intellectual honesty for a fundamental revision of the previous picture of history.
 
According to Foa, it is appropriate and urgent to revise the extent of the charges against the Church and its condemnation. But above all, the actual role of the Inquisition should distinguish between actual and alleged persecution.
 
There is a gigantic abyss between scientific certainty and "popular opinion" lay on the subject of Inquisition. The Internet has so far brought no improvement in the situation. Rather the widespread distorted image is widely disseminated further in the global network. It was daunting to see, says Foa, how truthful many people are against the Fake News Inquisition implanted in their minds. It turns out to be very difficult to break up absolutely baseless, but solidified prejudices. Unfortunately, it is difficult to pave the way for the truth while fake news are always new and rapidly spreading.
 
Anna Foa, graduated in 1968 with distinction at the University La Sapienza, where she later taught herself. She is a great-granddaughter of the anti-Zionist chief rabbi of Turin, Giuseppe Foa (1840-1917) and daughter of a founding father of post-war democratic Italy, the left-wing, atheist party leader and Member of Parliament Vittorio Foa (1910-2008). 1)
 
His daughter Anna Foa returned to her Jewish faith. Most recently, she was a visiting professor at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem.

Marshall McLuhan aptly called the Media as a ¨Luciferian Conspiracy to conceal the Truth¨ aka Fake News. She can spin it all she wants the News is censored, false, manipulated and programmed for the masses. Although they man 24-7 the Internet censoring as much as possible, unleashing plethoria of computer bots, with Fake Catholic Forums, Fake Catholic blogs, Fake Catholics posters all the while controlling the narrative and opinion not to mention the data mining, analyzing comments, psy op operations on the par of totalitarians the Truth still manages to get through sometimes on the Net.

In fact, Henry Kamen wrote about The Spanish Inquistion- it was a legend and all black no surprise there.
What neither will tell you is that the diaspora they set up shop in Amersterdam where the black legend grew exponetially with the advent of the printing press. Meanwhile to furter revenge Spain they posted at all ports when Spanish ships laden with supplies and gold left port and subsequently attacked by ¨Pirates¨ - which were really the British East India Co. and Dutch East India Co. all controlled by them. The Pirates who captured some say a million white Christian slaves and children were them in disguise.

She is a supporter of the Jewish Left Anti Semitism laws in Italy and recommends its use against the people here.There would also be no tolerance from her for Catholic interpretations of the dogma extra ecclesiam nulla salus (EENS) or Vatican Council II, with Feeneyism instead of the Cushingism, which is being taught at the pontifical universities, including the Gregorian Pontifical University, where she is allowed to teach.-Lionel Andrades

The inquisition in Spain was one of little choice. There was a war with Islam. As someone with a Jesuit history degree, the Church emphasized its control on the masses. The CDF of today is the Inquisition of yesterday---Ratzinger was the watchdog for JPII. Ladara is now the lap dog for PF.

Today there is a Jewish Left Inquisition of Catholics.They tell Catholics, in public what they should believe and what they are not allowed to believe as Catholics.
Many people have been prisoned or have lost their jobs in Italy because of the Anti-Semitism laws.It is used as a political weapon.

I was taught in college nine years ago that the myths of the INquisition, including the "Black Legend", was the work of late 16th century Protestants written and spread to discredit the Catholic Church. Some were spread in Germany, but most were the work of Dutch Protestants, and some English Protestants during the time of Elizabeth I

A lot of nonsense has been written about the Spanish Inquisition. In its early days it was mainly limited to Castile and concerned itself with identifying Jews and Moors who while claiming to be 'new Christians' were in fact conspiring against secular and religious order.
A previous poster mentions Amsterdam as being the source of supplies and finance for the Barbary Pirates, he is correct. Fernand Braudel in his book 'The Mediterranean in the Age of Phillip II' mentions Amsterdam as being the power behind those, and other, pirates. Of course stops short of mentioning the 'nationality' of those power brokers.
Other sources state that between 1570 and 1750 and estimated 1.5 million European Christians were taken into slavery in North Africa. Not only the coasts of Spain, France and Italy, but as far as Ireland and Iceland were devastated by these raiders.
We appear to be witnessing a resurgence of this war.

That's the whole point of the many holocaust fairy-tales. It allows the Jews to continue their destruction of Christian culture. As St Paul said, they are the enemies of all mankind and are not pleasing to God.

The entire Jewish identity is their rejection of Christ. The word Jew is a theological construct. A rejector of Christ.

"holocaust fairy-tales"

Sorry to dispute you, but if you have the money, visit Poland and make a trip to Auchwitz. Visit Dachau, Treblinka, etc. You can actually go into the gas chamber and see where millions were gassed to death. You can see the scratch marks on the walls where the people were panicking, struggling to find a way out. You can see mounds of eye glasses taken from the prisoners. And you can see videos and photos of what happened there. Among the 6 millions of Jews, were over 3 million Catholics, and thousands of priests and nuns who were rounded up either because at one time they had been, or their families had been Jewish, or they had helped hide Jews.
Saint Edith Stein died in one of these camps. So did St. Maximillian Kolbe.
Visit what was the Jewish ghetto, and see the empty synagogues and Jewish schools.
Of 11.5 million Jews in Europe before the Holocaust, over 6 million were killed.
I don't think the history and past of the Jews are innocent of everything, nor do I think they have any respect for the Catholic Faith.
But I defy anyone who goes there to Auchwitz, as I did, or even just to buy and watch the dozens of dvds on the Holocaust, to still claim that they are all "fairy tales".

" The word Jew is a theological construct. A rejector of Christ"

That, Anonymous, is ridiculous. The term "Jew" is a very ancient word that has nothing to do with Jesus Christ or rejecting Him as the Messiah.
There were, at one time, 12 tribes living in the area roughly of present day Israel and part of Jordan. One of the tribes was called the Tribe of Judah. Judah was one of the sons of Israel (originally named Jacob).
The Tribe of Judah was more successful and powerful than most, and established itself as a kingdom, the Kingdom of Judah. It encompassed part of what is today Israel. The Kingdom lasted for a century or two, but was conquered and the land partitioned amongst the Babylonians, Assyrians, Persians, etc. But that particular part of Israel was still known as Judah, and the people who came to be known as Jews were called Judaens.
In ancient times, the Roman Empire labeled the entire area of what today is Israel as Judea....and the people were named Judaens. They were not called Jews...they were called Judaens.
After the fall of the Roman Empire and the loss of the province of Judea to invaders, the people who were known as Judeans dispersed in a diaspora across the Mediterrean world as far as Spain and France. In time, they were labeled as "Jews". I don't know what language or group of people coined the word "Jew". It probably was an abbreviation for Judah, or Judeans.
But the word "Jew" is not a theological construct. It is an ancient, probably early Medieval, abbreviation for Judeans. The Romans did not call them Jews. They were known as Judeans, and collectively were understood to worship the One True God, as opposed to Roman idols.
If Anon. AT 2:50 is the same as ANON AT 2:55 AM, I would label you as a first class bigot.

There are good Jews, orthodox Jews who believe and live the ten Commandments.
Jesus mentioned the synagogue of Satan and told some Jews that their father was Satan.
He also told the Jews that if they do not believe in Him they would all perish.
Today the porn industry is not owned by orthodox Jews.
The media which is pro Satan is not owned by conservative and good Jews.
The fashion industry and Holywood is not owned by Messianic Jews.
The media is owned by those who support homosexuality, euthanasia, abortion and other pro-Satanic values.
Leftists governments which place restrictions on the Catholic Church today support the synagogue of Satan.
The Jewish Left, including the 'liberal' rabbis who support them, for example in Italy, openly tell the Catholic Church which doctrines they should hold and which will be tolerated by them.
The Rotschild families financing of the Bolshevik revolution in which hundreds of thousands of Christians were killed is now official.It is no more a conspiracy theory.
In Italy someone on the Internet, it was reported, posted an article saying that most of the professors at the La Sapienza university belonged to the Jewish Left.He listed their names. Ann Foa, above, welcomed criminal charges being filed against this un-known person under anti -Semitism laws, which the Jewish Left have placed in Catholic- Italy.
Then a retired bishop in the North of Italy in an interview said that the reaction of the German people during the Holocaust was against the Jewish ( Left) in power. He was saying that the same people are in power today. A liberal rabbi who represented the Jewish Anti Defamation League and the state of Israel, had that bishop recant,via Pope Benedict.
The Jewish Left is promoting all type of evil under the guise of freedom of thought and belief but this freedom was not given to Bishop Richard Williamson, who cannot even be cited on the media.
We are to love all Jews and we love them but we also have to be aware of those among them who are part of the synagogue of Satan and whose Father is the devil.In charity we have to tell them to convert into the Catholic Church and live the Gospels to avoid the fires of Hell ( Vatican Council II, Ad Gentes 7).The Catholic Church is the continuation of the Jewish Religion, the Church is the new people of God (Nostra Aetate 4,Vatican Council II)

The gospel of St John, after their rejection of Christ, refers to those who are rejectors as Jews. Let's hear about the crimes committed by the controllers in the Soviet Union. Do those millions, killed by Jewish commisars matter? I guess not. The Jews! The Jews! They're the only ones who matter. You've proven Alexander Solzhenitsyn's point. We can't talk about it because they are controlling the narrative. First class bigot. Good grief, Norman Lear, this isn't a tv show it's life.

Lionel is right, and you sound like you would have fit in very well as a chief advisor to Hitler, Himmler, Goebbels, etc. Your fanatical hatred of the Jewish people is evident.
I never said that the Jews were perfect, or that they respect the Catholic Church. They don't. Most, even the liberal Jewish people, have an aversion towards the Catholic Faith while the Orthodox and Hasidic Jewish people truly hate the Catholic Faith. It is a remnant of the persecution they suffered at the hands of SOME Christians in the Middle Ages, and the fact that in SOME countries (Spain,Italy,Germany), they were largely forced to live in their own enclaves (ghettos), away from the general population.
I would say that I believe that the pre-Vatican II Catholic Church was not controlled by the Jews, and since at that time there was absoloutely no contact generally between the Catholic Church and Jews( just as there was, before Vatican II largely no contact or even acknowledgement of Protestants by the Catholic Church), the Vatican and the Catholic Church could not have cared less what the Jews thought about them religiously. But on the human side, the Catholic Church was in contact with Jews and did all if could, and much more than any others, to save the Jews during the Holocaust. At that time, even the most hardened anti-Catholic Jews (even rabbis) were grateful, and the chief rabbi of Rome even converted to Catholicism and took the baptismal name of Eugenio, in honor of the great Pope Pius XII and his efforts to save the Jews.
It's only since the errors of Vatican II, has the Catholic Church bent over backwards to appease the Jews, and Muslims, and Buddhists, Hindus, etc. Especially under this Pope, it has become a joke of a Church. So yes, I agree with you that since Vatican II (and only since then), it is possible that Jewish interests and influence dictate a lot of Vatican policy, even to who is canonized a saint...or not (the great Popes Pius IX and Pius XII and Queen Isabella of Spain).
This attitude of appeasement to the Jews (and other religions), has weakened the Catholic Church to almost being irrelevant. Especially under this Pope.
Unfortunatly, this is not likely to change for maybe 100 years or so.
The late, great Cardinal Giuseppe Siri, who was twice elected Pope and had to refuse because of radical liberal pressure both inside and outside the Church, said that it would take 200 years to undo the errors of Vatican II.
Given the radical we now have as Pope, I suspect that he underestimated that time frame.

Has anyone here considered whether Pope Francis might have patrilinear Jewish ancestry? "Bergoglio" was a village under the jurisdiction of Alessandria, Piedmont in Italy, and according to Wikipedia Alessandria has had a deeply rooted Jewish history. Apparently a certain Abraham, son of Joseph Vitale de Sacredoti Cohen, opened a bank there in or around 1490, and thence seems to have grown a tightly knitted Jewish community in the city.

The question is not an arbitrary one, because it must be mentioned that Pope Bergoglio has in the past openly greeted the devil with a satanic hand sign together with Tagle, and he derives his episcopal lineage from Mariano Rampolla, who was most probably a freemason linked to the gnostic and luciferian OTO (ordo templi orientis), which is based (like all occultism in Europe) on Jewish kabbalism. Rampolla's ascent to the Throne of Saint Peter was thwarted last century by Divine Providence through the instrumentality of Mgr. Ernest Jouin and the Christian Austrian Emperor, the path thus being opened for the election of Giuseppe Sarto as Pope Pius X, who was the consolation of Holy Church par excellence in the 20th century.

We may rightfully ask whether the episcopal consecration of Bergoglio in the lineage of Rampolla might not have been a conscious choice.

Bergoglio hates the Church and the Christian Europe of old, and I remember reading how a Jewish rabbi had called him his rabbi when he had become the Roman Pontiff. Would it surprise anyone who is aware of how the world works if he would be discovered to be of Jewish descent?

I know Pius X overhauled the Breviary.
What took place from 1951-1958 was equivalent to placing dynamite in a skyscraper before implosion.
