"Rawlings has made a valuable contribution to the field. She has successfully constructed a thought-provoking, analytical précis of some of the most essential studies of her subject. She has emphasized the complicated and contingent nature of the Inquisition's practices in a manner accessible to any interested reader." (European History Quarterly, January 2009)

"Offers insights into a much mythologised and maligned phenomenon and, historiographically, it's bang up to date." (BBC History Magazine)

"Helen Rawling's The Spanish Inquisition is an excellent introduction to this complex and controversial subject." (H-Net Reviews)

"Solid virtues and thoughtful care ... have gone into this contribution." (Bulletin of Spanish Studies)

"Makes for compelling reading and for a perfect test case against which to measure all the revisionist history that Rawlings so aptly summarises." (Journal of Ecclesiastical History)
