Torquemada! The name that struck fear into Spanish conversos and just about everyone else in Spain in the 15th Century. Torquemada! Grand Inquisitor and the all-powerful religious zealot who burned thousands and tortured many more thousands in his quest to rid Spain of sin. Torquemada – who had the ear of the Queen of Spain and extracted confessions out of the guilty and the innocent with equal zest. Today we’re the ones judging him… and history will be as unkind as he was then.
