EWTN's mini-series The Inquisition update

The Final Shoot for EWTN's mini-series, The Inquisition

On Saturday 16th January 2016 the final shoot of EWTN's The Inquisition mini-series took place at the Church of the Holy Cross, Woking. We wanted to show the inquisitional tribunal authentically with a Cardinal or Grand Inquisitor presiding (played by Robin Ingram) a canon lawyer, Theologian, and  a scribe also present. Tribunals may include more members and also non clergy. At the time the Inquisitions were considered lenient in comparison to the civil authorities and were a great advancement in the law.
