The Medieval Inquisition was a series of Inquisitions Catholic Church bodies charged with suppressing heresy from around , including the Episcopal Inquisition —s and later the Papal Inquisition s. The Medieval Inquisition was established in response to movements considered apostate or heretical to Christianity , in particular Catharism and Waldensians in Southern France and Northern Italy. These were the first inquisition movements of many that would follow.
In this concise and balanced survey of heresy and inquisition in the Middle Ages, Jennifer Kolpacoff Deane explores the increasingly bitter encounters between piety, reform, dissent, and the institutional Church between and Although the Writing a textbook that offers something new to this field. It is not attempting to provide an exhaustive reference.
Heresy , theological doctrine or system rejected as false by ecclesiastical authority. The Greek word hairesis from which heresy is derived was originally a neutral term that signified merely the holding of a particular set of philosophical opinions. Once appropriated by Christianity , however, the term heresy began to convey a note of disapproval. The term heresy also has been used among Jews , although they have not been as intense as Christians in their punishment of heretics.
The concept and combating of heresy has historically been less important in Buddhism , Hinduism , and Islam than in Christianity. In Christianity, the church from the start regarded itself as the custodian of a divinely imparted revelation which it alone was authorized to expound under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit.
This attitude of hostility to heresy is evident in the New Testament itself. Paul , for instance, insists that his gospel message is identical with that of the Apostles , and in the later books of the New Testament the contrast in attitudes regarding approved doctrines and heretical ones is even more sharply drawn. In the 2nd century the Christian church became increasingly aware of the need to keep its teaching uncontaminated, and it devised criteria to test deviations.
The Apostolic Fathers , 2nd-century Christian writers, appealed to the prophets and Apostles as sources of authoritative doctrine, and St. Later, the ecclesiastical and universal church council became the instrument for defining orthodoxy and condemning heresy.
Eventually, in the Western church, the doctrinal decision of a council had to be ratified by the pope to be accepted. During its early centuries, the Christian church dealt with many heresies.
They included, among others, docetism , Montanism , adoptionism , Sabellianism , Arianism , Pelagianism , and gnosticism. See also Donatist ; Marcionite ; monophysite. Historically, the major means that the church had of combating heretics was to excommunicate them. In the 12th and 13th centuries, however, the Inquisition was established by the church to combat heresy; heretics who refused to recant after being tried by the church were handed over to the civil authorities for punishment, usually execution.
The Roman Catholic Church , satisfied that it is the true church armed with an infallible authority, has alone remained faithful to the ancient and medieval theory of heresy, and it occasionally denounces doctrines or opinions that it considers heretical. Most of the great Protestant churches similarly started with the assumption that their own particular doctrines embodied the final statement of Christian truth and were thus prepared to denounce as heretics those who differed with them, but, with the gradual growth of toleration and the 20th-century ecumenical movement , most Protestant churches drastically revised the notion of heresy as understood in the pre-Reformation church.
It does not now seem to them inconsistent for people to stoutly maintain the doctrines of their own communion while not regarding as heretics those who hold different views. The Roman Catholic Church, too, draws a distinction between those who willfully and persistently adhere to doctrinal error and those who embrace it through no fault of their own—e.

The subject of medieval heresy and inquisition has enjoyed a renaissance of sorts among scholars during the last decade or so. Scholarly treatment has moved well beyond the oftentimes-confessional approach to heresy and inquisition taken by their earliest investigators. More recent researchers have returned again and again to grapple with the documentary sources and attempt to understand their complexities.

Он успел бы вскрикнуть от боли, если бы сильная рука не зажала ему рот. Старик не мог даже пошевелиться. Он почувствовал неимоверный жар, бегущий вверх по руке.
