Causas de inquisicion; [manuscript].

Causas de inquisicion [manuscript].
A collection of works related to the Spanish Inquisition ranging from 16th- through 18th-century Spain, including a short treatise favoring the elimination of the statutes of cleanliness of blood, known in Spanish as los estatutos de limpieza de sangre, addressed to Philip III, King of Spain, and written by Andrés Pacheco, Grand Inquisitor (1622-1626) and Bishop of Cuenca; a work from 1662 outlining the jurisdiction of the Inquisition in criminal cases involving inquisitorial officials, based on many sources, including a letter from Philip II written in 1570; a letter from one anonymous Roman Catholic gentleman to another describing the controversy over a certain paper published in Spain in 1721 that was censured by the Inquisition; a letter, also from 1721, to an unnamed inquisitor from an unnamed scholar giving his opinion, at the request of the inquisitor, on a certain anonymous writing banned by the Inquisition, referred to only as the memorial manuscrito, which apparently denounced the practices of the Jesuits; and the case of Froilán Diaz, Dominican friar and Spanish theologian, who ascended to the position of confessor to King Charles II only to be removed to a secret prison by the Inquisition for several years while his trial bogged down in a battle over jurisdiction between the Spanish crown and the Vatican.
Philip II, 1556-1598.; Philip III, 1598-1621.; Philip IV, 1621-1665.; Charles II, 1665-1700.; Philip V, 1700-1746.
