Inquisition
established by the papacy in the Middle Ages, charged with seeking out, trying and sentencing persons guilty of heresy.(those who thought different than the Holy See {the see of the bishop of Rome; the authority, jurisdiction, and governmental functions associated with the papacy}) Holy Roman Emperor Charles V introduced the Inquisition into the Netherlands in 1522, where it failed to wipe out Protestantism. The Spanish established it in Sicily in 1517, but were unable to do so (wipe out Protestantism) in Naples and Milan. Historians have noted that many lands where Protestants lived, had institutions such as the consistory (Roman Catholic Church council of cardinals presided over by the pope) in Geneva, which were as repressive as the Spanish Inquisition.
