I just caught part 1 of this 4 part documentary done in 2006. I caught it on PBS, part 2 am recording.

Part 1 - The Cathars
Part 2 - Spanish Inquisition
Parts 3 & 4 ???

The presentation is based on source material recently released by the Vatican.

I just found the site for it:
http://www.inquisitionproductions.com/index.html

Quote:
Secret Files of the Inquisition tells a story of epic proportions and powerful themes of Holy Wars and Crusades, of torture and terror, of the struggle for human rights and dignity. Based on previously unreleased secret documents from European Archives including the Vatican, Secret Files of the Inquisition unveils the incredible true story of the Catholic Church’s 500 year struggle to remain the world’s only true Christian religion. For over half a millennium a system of mass terror reigned. Thousands were subject to secret courts, torture and punishment.
Filmed in High Definition, this production spans medieval France in Episode 1, 15th century Spain in Episode 2, Renaissance Italy in Episode 3 and mid-nineteenth century Europe in Episode 4.

The 4 x 60 mini-series reveals how the most powerful church on earth created the Inquisition to attack its enemies and preserve the unquestioned authority of the Pope. Historians, experts and Church authorities advise on the handling of this controversial subject matter.


What gets me is this line ... "Based on previously unreleased secret documents from European Archives including the Vatican"

Imagine doing something so horrible that you need to supress it for 700 years (John Paul 2 released the files).

I kind of chuckled, saddly... very saddly, when they brought up the creation of the Dominicans. I then remembered how RAW fondly refered to them as the "Dogs of God" (Domini Cannis)

Anyways... try to catch it or tape it

Thanks for posting this. I set the DVR to record the episodes 2 in total and perhaps the station will broadcast the rest for anyone who missed it the first time around.

I watched the program and noticed several points.

The unfairness of the legalistic approach which didn't allow any evidence from sources outside the Church's doctrines;

The complete and absolute control of the populace;

The outright kidnapping of the Motarra boy and his indoctrination into Roman Catholicism in which his entire familiar connection was severed and proved that taken and brainwashed young enough that anyone can be manipulated into believing another religion and adopting it.

Take it from there....

I missed parts 3 & 4 however they are being rebroadcast at 1am, so I've set my DVR.

I hope people WATCH this.. and keep in mind when they hear their own religion talking about converting the masses and what equates to "conversion at knife point" they look and consider the ramifications of what they are really doing. I look at things like "Jesus Camp" and wonder if people really see what they are trully doing.

"Convert or Die" - Is comming from radicals in the East, and precursors comming from radicals in the west... I hope people can pause for a moment and reflect on what they are doing.

I despise what was done, but i applaud JP2 for releasing this. I think he did what he could to make amends for what was done even though he didnt do it. Perhaps by releasing it, he did what he could to help prevent it happening again ?
