Chapter Summary

This front matter section of this book Renaissance Inquisitors: Dominican Inquisitors and Inquisitorial Districts in Northern Italy, 1474-1527 contains the table of contents and a preface. The book talks about Renaissance inquisitors drawn from the Dominican order and investigates the life of the Dominican friars. It looks at the transformation by so many friars during the Renaissance, both conventual and observant, of the office of inquisitor into a largely nominal one, a mere stage in the customary cursus honorum. The book also explains prosecution of heretics, especially Waldensians and Judaizers, and the hunting of witches in northern Italy till the turn of the second decade of the sixteenth century during the Renaissance.

Keywords: Dominican friars; Judaizers; northern Italy; Renaissance inquisitors; Waldensians
