Chapter Summary

The institution which would, very much later, come to be mythologized as the Inquisition was first established in the Iberian Peninsula as a response to the heretics and the Waldensians who had first appeared in the lands of the crown of Aragon in the later twelfth century. The presence of Ramon would loom large over the development of inquisitorial procedure in the lands of the crown during many years. Ramon de Penyaforts thought concerning heresy had been laid out in the revised version of the Summa de Paenitentia, probably between 1234 and 1236. The decisions of Tarragona were clearly aimed firstly at the Waldensians and only secondarily at the other heretics, which strongly suggests that in the diocese of Barcelona Waldensians were perceived to be the greatest threat.
