Considering Inquisitorial Documentation: What, How, and Where to Investigate?

This 20-hour course will be taught by Dr. Susana Cabezas Fontanilla, from the Department of History and Anthropology of America, Sciences and Techniques and Medieval History (Universidad Complutense de Madrid).

Place: Seminar I, Tower II of Humanities Floor 13, Ciudad Universitaria, Mexico City 
Classroom course.

Objective: 
Inquisitorial documentation is characterized by its abundance, variety, and integrity, along with its dispersion and complexity. These peculiarities can make any researcher who wants
 to work with these inquisitorial files find difficulties in understanding the sources which tell, firsthand, the story of the Holy Office. Hence the objective of this seminar is to discover the typologies of the inquisatorial documentation, with their levels of richness, diversity and textual relevance.

Methodology: 
We will combine theoretical exhibitions on each point of the program with inquisitorial documentation extracted from different archives. Alongside these, we will perform certain illustrative sessions of the functioning of the Portal of Spanish Archives (PARES), 
which concentrates the vast majority of the documents issued by the Holy Office.

Topics: 

1) Brief introduction to the Inquisition history and institution. 

2) Hierarchial Structure
Inquisitor General, Supreme Council, Courts of the Holy Office, Secretaries, Notaries and Rapporteurs. 

3) Inquisitional Documentation: 
Records of the Grand Inquisitor.
 Documents on the Supreme Council of the Inquisition. Court Documents of the Holy Office. 

4) Work tools: 
PAIRS 

5) Documentación novohispana.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND: 
Students, teachers and researchers in the Humanities and Social Sciences (as well as related sciences) who are interested in understanding and studying the documentary problems of the Holy Office of the Inquisition.
