Records from three communications of the Royal Council of Castile concerning the jurisdiction of the Spanish Inquisition, protocol regarding the immunity of the inquisitors and their families, the correction and limitation of certain excesses of the inquisitors, and the expurgation and prohibition of books and papers. The first council dates from 1696, the same year Charles II assembled the Junta Magna or Great Council, which investigated the Inquisition and apparently produced such a damning report that it was destroyed before the more competent Philip V took the throne in 1700. Numerous references to the last two royal confessors of Charles II, Pedro Matilla and Froilán Díaz, appear in this section. Also of interest is the third council, which addresses the censorship of books and writings in Spanish America, including the case of the bishop of Puebla, Mexico, Juan de Palafox y Mendoza.
