Agents of Orthodoxy : Honor, Status, and the Inquisition in Colonial Pernambuco, Brazil (Paperback)

The Portuguese Inquisition is often portrayed as a tyrannical institution that imposed itself on an impotent society. Drawing on extensive archival research, the book challenges this myth by arguing that the Inquisition was integral to colonial society, reinforcing European social and religious values that were recreated in colonial Brazil.
