Title:
Instrucion para actuar los comissarios y notarios de el Sancto Officio [manuscript] / por Alonso de Pedraça.
Abstract:
A book of instructions for commissioners of the Spanish Inquisition, a relatively low position in the hierarchy of the Inquisition, and notaries, a secretarial but slightly higher position, written in 1667 by Alonso de Pedraça, himself a notary and commissioner for over 30 years in the city of Cuenca, Spain, location of a permanent Inquisitorial tribunal established in 1489. Contains an elaborate dedication to the then Inquisitor General, Juan Everardo Nithard, containing a coat of arms, and letters of approbation from Pedro de Espinosa, Jacinto de Urturi y Ibañez, and Bartolome Francisco de Villaviciosa, all leading figures in the church and municipal government of Cuenca at the time. The instructions detail the process of determining or confirming genealogy and purity of bloodlines, referred to in the text as limpieça de sangre, including the summoning and examination of witnesses, as well as the evaluation of hearsay evidence.
