A defense of the Spanish Inquisition, written by an author who only identifies himself as an anti-revolutionary Spaniard, in response to a letter by Henri Grégoire, bishop of Blois and French revolutionary leader, which criticized the Inquisition. The main text is thematically divided between the necessity of the Inquisition, its legitimacy, and its conformity to scripture and the teachings of the church. The work is preceded by a preface addressed to the Spanish people, in which the author refers to previous responses to Gergoire's letter by two clergymen. However he feels that both have omitted a defense of the Inquisition from their responses, which is what compels him to "make up for this silence." He may be, in part, referring to the response to bishop Grégoire written by Joaquín Lorenzo Villanueva, published in 1798.
