Inquisition "wasn't so bad after all" according to Vatican

The Vatican has created an exhibit to convince the Faithful that the Inquisition "wasn't so bad after all." The temporary Rare and Precious exhibition at Rome's Vittoriano Museum is designed to "expose some myths about this dark chapter of its past."

The 60 items on display show how the Church was involved in the everyday lives of medieval and renaissance people and includes documents on travel restriction for Jews and persecution of Protestants. Missing are instruments of torture.
