    Amongst our weaponry are such diverse elements as: fear, surprise, ruthless efficiency, an almost fanatical devotion to the Pope, and nice red uniforms – Oh damn!

    Wikipedia powers GO!

    It was a trial system set up in Spain in 1478 to maintain Catholic orthodoxy, which was to replace the papal tribunal system. It had jurisdiction only over baptized Christians. The Inquisition worked in large part to ensure the orthodoxy of recent converts.

    @dekay46: Especially the TV version where he goes to his brother’s shop in Essex, what a great episode altogether. I always wondered before I had really watched many episodes if they all held together as well as the few I’ve seen and the answer is, sort of. They hold together well enough to keep me entertained anyway. @nyokki: You’re close. They don’t say sports. They say “sport” at least that’s the way it sounds to me in the episode “Archaeology Today” (you’ve got Netflix, the whole damn series is on streaming, you probably know this, and its awesome.)
