Chapter Summary

This chapter concentrates on the Roman Inquisition's current image: a much fuller, more nuanced, quite different, and rapidly evolving portrait that has emerged since the early 1980s. John Tedeschi deserves credit for delineating the first notable feature of the Roman Inquisition's current face. For several reasons, including the technical difficulty of scanning manuscripts, those who study the Roman Inquisition in the foreseeable future will find large quantities of scanned documents in archives. The availability of analytical inventories and databases will certainly facilitate their research. It enables the forming of reliable quantitative statements and enhances the possibility of making systematic comparisons not only among seats of the Roman Inquisition but also between that institution and its counterparts in the Iberian world. If all goes well, the next generation will witness an exponential expansion of knowledge about tribunals of the faith and those who came before them.

Keywords: Iberian world; John Tedeschi; local tribunal; Roman inquisition
