I'll come in again

Nobody expects the Roman Inquisition—except perhaps those planning on visiting a new exhibition in Vittoriosa. The show “The Roman Inquisition in Malta and Elsewhere” recently opened in the newly restored upper floors of the former Inquisitor’s Palace, which now serves as the Museum of Ethnography. Within, besides stories of witchcraft and magical spells, visitors can see books owned by the supreme judge of the inquisition, learn about his role, and delve into the proceedings from witch trials. Certain documents have been lent by the Vatican archives for display, including a plan of the Inquisitor’s Palace itself. Popular misconceptions about the inquisition are also addressed (hopefully including whether or not their chief weapon was “surprise”, like their Spanish counterparts). Nonetheless, there are still sections on spiritual punishment, sequestration and corporal punishment for those craving the traditional bloodthirsty picture. Anybody burning to see the exhibition can catch it on the island until 11 January 2015.
