Item description for Two Death Sentences by the Inquisition Tribunal of Malta, 1639 by Kenneth Gambin...
Besides fighting Protestant doctrines, the setting up of the Roman Inquisition in 1542 was also aimed at introducing a sense of correct behaviour and belief expected from all Christians. The Inquisition was lenient with first-time offenders or with those who showed genuine signs of repentance. In those rare cases where the accused persisted in his or her errors, however, the Inquisition was clear: the obstinate and stubborn unrepentant who refused to be reconciled to the Church, had to be handed to the secular court to be burned at the stake.
