The Spanish Inquisition - ... The Church began to empower government officials called Inquisitors to essentially hunt down “unbelievers” and quietly question them about their faith (Bachrach 12). Nearly all of the questioned citizens would refuse to co-operate. This infuriated the Inquisitors and the Holy Office, and harsh punishments gradually increased. These despicable Inquisitions originally began circa 1200 A.D. and different Inquisitions continued until nearly 1850 A.D. (Bachrach 13). The Spanish Inquisition, the cruelest of all, seemed an innocent way to convert Jews and other minority groups at first, but it took a drastic turn to violence....   [tags: Religion, Catholic Church, Spanish Government] 718 words

Kyd’s The Spanish Tragedy - The Humanist Chronotope - Kyd’s The Spanish Tragedy - The Humanist Chronotope In "Forms of Time and of the Chronotope in the Novel," Mikhail Bakhtin defines the chronotope as "the intrinsic connectedness of temporal and spatial relationships that are artistically expressed in literature" (84). That is what the chronotope is; Bakhtin continues with what the chrontope does: "It can even be said that it is precisely the chronotope that defines genre and generic distinctions" (85). In The Spanish Tragedy, Kyd layers three chronotopic zones to create a new chronotope, the "humanist chronotope," which in turn creates a unique dramatic genre, one we might call "humanist drama." According to Bakhtin, two seminal chronotopes from classical literature form the basis of most later chronotopes....   [tags: Spanish Tragedy]
