The Grand Inquisitor's Manual by nationally bestselling author Jonathan Kirsch is a provocative popular history of the Inquisition, the 12th century reign of church-sanctioned terror. Ranging from the Knights Templar to the first Protestants, from Joan of Arc to Galileo, The Grand Inquisitor's Manual is a fascinating and sobering study of the torture and murder of hundreds of thousands of "heretics" in God's name--the original blueprints for persecution originally drafted in the Middle Ages but followed for centuries afterwards, up to and including the "advanced interrogation methods" recently employed at Guantanamo Bay.
