To examine the records of the Inquisition in search either of sensation or of food for propaganda is equally unprofitable. Almost if not all the worst features of the system can be studied at first hand by anyone who chooses to make himself a nuisance in at least three European countries to-day. It may even be added that though the similarities are great, in some respects the Holy Office does not suffer by comparison.
«Though I belong to a race against which its persecutions were most strenuously directed», writes Professor Roth, «I could not fail to be impressed deeply by the method, and indeed conscientiousness, of the Inquisitorial procedure».
