Established by the Catholic Church in 1231, the Inquisition continued in one form or another for almost seven hundred years. Though associated with the persecution of heretics and Jews--and with burning at the stake--its targets were more numerous and its techniques more ambitious. The Inquisition pioneered surveillance and censorship and "scientific" interrogation. As time went on, its methods and mindset spread far beyond the Church to become tools of secular persecution.With vivid immediacy and authority, Cullen Murphy puts a human face on a familiar but little-known piece of our past.God’s Juryencompasses the diverse stories of the Knights Templar, Torquemada, Galileo, and Graham Greene. By understanding the Inquisition, Murphy argues, we come face to face with forces that shape the modern world. 

Cullen Murphy is the editor at large at Vanity Fair and the former managing editor of the Atlantic Monthly . He is the author of  Are We Rome?,   The Word According to Eve , and the essay collection Just Curious .
