CM2No one expects the Spanish Inquisition.  So went the old Monty Python skit. But does anyone expect that the Roman Catholic Church’s office of the Inquisition is still with us today?  In his insightful new book, Cullen Murphy, editor at large at Vanity Fair, deconstructs the infamous Inquisition, lays out its past, and offers a brisk and sobering overview of the role it still plays. In pioneering techniques of official spying, censorship and “scientific” investigation, the Inquisition lives on.
