Manuscript copy of an edition of this late 17th-century work published in 1722 in London (with a title page falsely placing the publisher in Villafranca). Collection of documents related to the Inquisitions of Spain, Portugal, and Mexico. The first part of the manuscript (f. 3v-56v), written in Portuguese, consists of a short letter written by King John IV of Portugal, followed by a general account of the Inquisition in Portugal, including acceptable practices and specific examples from individual cases. The second part (f. 58r-132v), written in Spanish, consists of philosophical arguments supporting the Inquisition, a letter from Pope Innocent XI detailing the rights of new Christian converts in Portugal, instructions (translated from Italian) on how to conduct interviews on witnesses brought before the Inquisition, and the case of Luiz Ramè, who was charged with heresy and tried by the Inquisition of Mexico. Ramè's case is written in the first person and begins with what appears to be a letter he wrote to an unnamed aristocratic woman.
