Chapter Summary

This chapter focuses the attention on the city of Rome and some regions and towns of the Papal States from the late sixteenth to the middle of the eighteenth century. The aim is to underline the conflicts and interrelations between the Inquisition and other central tribunals (such as those of the Governor, and of the Cardinal Vicar), local bishops and governors and the role played by officers in the Roman tribunal and in the inner peripheral ones. In this diversified context, drawing largely on unpublished archival material, my paper is intended to elucidate the collaboration/opposition with local episcopal courts and the provincial inquisitorial world and his staff, to verify the gap between theory and practice, between Roman, central policy and the actual practice. How deep and incisive the inquisitorial control was in a peculiar context like the Eternal City and the Papal States?
