Conflict in the Elizabethan Era
The Spanish Inquisition was started to discover and punish converted Jews and later Muslims who were insincere meaning they were still their previous religion and had only pretended to convert so they would not be tortured. The Spanish Inquisition censorship policy condemned books approved by the Holy See. The Spanish Inquisition was one of the most harsh, most organized, and one of the easiest ways to receive a death penalty. The Spanish government tried to establish the Inquisition in all its dominions; but in the Spanish Netherlands the local officials did not cooperate, and the inquisitors were chased out of Naples. The Spanish Inquisition finally ended in the year 1834.
