Chapter Summary

This is a sequel to a study of the long-serving inquisitor of Modena, Giacomo Tinti (1626–47). Again it draws on surviving correspondence in the Modena State Archive and in the Archivio della Congregazione in Rome. Allowing for vagaries in the survival rate of correspondence the judgement is that Tinti’s successors communicated less often and were more cryptic, and Rome was similarly terser. The Congregation might complain about trivial correspondence from the local inquisitor. With the creation of a ghetto in Modena, issues of Christian–Jewish relations were less common. Instead problems of the number of patentees attached to the Holy Office, and the privileges involved, were frequently aired. Another common topic was the remission of prison sentences, with changes to house arrest, or to fines (especially if Jews were involved).
