In 1998, the Vatican opened on a limited basis its vaults to reveal in detail Roman Catholic brutality against any who dared go against its religion
and supreme law of the land. This is an extraordinary, award winning film in four parts that should be seen by all eternity to remind humanity that
religious ideas are sacred to ones self and should not be the subject of persecution to the point of ethnic cleansing and brutal murder.
It can be argued that this persecution continues to this day, but in a much more deceptive, secret manner via corruption, money, greed that knows no
limits, government infiltration by Roman Catholics, and more recently the ideas of PNAC and the New World Order.
High in the Pyrenees in the southwest of what is now France, in a time when the Church of Rome proclaims itself the one true religion, heresy has
taken hold. The Pope sends the Inquisitors of Heretical depravity to exterminate the heresy. Unbelievers are hunted down, condemned and burned. In
1308 the entire village of Montaillou is taken prisoner of the Inquisition. No one is safe - not even the village priest and the chatelaine of its
castle. From the secret files - the extraordinary revelations of village life under the Inquisition.
Spain. 1468. A land where Christians, Muslims and Jews have lived in tolerance for centuries. But that time is ending. A young King and Queen bent on
immortality proclaim themselves the Catholic Monarchs and start an Inquisition. Jews who had converted to Christianity are accused of secretly
sabotaging the Christian faith. They become the pawns in a game of chess with dire consequences. Thousands perish in a ritual called the act of faith.
In Zaragossa, the inquisitor is assassinated - setting off a wave of reprisals. Mothers will die to protect their children - and the highest in the
land will pay the ultimate price. It is the beginning of the Spanish empire and a long dark night that will last for centuries.
Italy, 1522. The decadence of a Medici Pope in Rome outrages the devout priest in Germany named Martin Luther. In the face of the Protestant
Reformation, a fanatical monk sets out to exterminate the heresy. On his path to power he will create the Roman Inquisition. And he will become the
most hated Pope in history. Powerful leaders of the Catholic Church are arrested and imprisoned, accused of reading books banned by the Church.
Free-thinking students are silenced. Darkness descends on the centers of learning and Renaissance. The Roman Inquisition leaves a legacy that lasts
into the twentieth century.
The secret files of the Inquisition are locked away for centuries. A Spanish priest devotes his life to exposing the brutal records of the
Inquisition. Napoleon spreads the ideas of the Enlightenment. He conquers Italy, abolishes the Inquisition and orders its files sent to Paris.
Spain's greatest painter, Goya, will depict the Inquisition for the first time - and then run for his life. The kidnapping of a young Jewish boy
secretly baptized will be one of the desperate last attempts at exerting the power of the Inquisition. A devoted father fights to get back his son.
The boy becomes a symbol for a Pope who is about to lose his dominion on earth.
And Rome makes few apologies. All those people murdered over their religion! How does modern day society allow this organization to continue to exist
and permeate every aspect of life, religious faith, government, politics, and control this planet? The Vatican and its secret vaults need to be
destroyed for good, but alas, there appears not to be a force strong enough to defeat them. Because when it comes right down to it, man's greed and
weakness for money ensnares them in the trap every time. Behold true evil. These eternal sins are being continually committed by them as we speak,
falsely under the name of God.
