Call in to speak with the host
Mr. Murphy, having previously spent 20 years with The Atlantic Monthly, serving as Managing Editor, is Editor-at-Large for Vanity Fair magazine. The author of The Word According to Eve: Women and the Bible in Ancient Times and Our Own and Are We Rome? The Fall of an Empire and the Fate of America, in his newest book he put The Inquisition under the microscope. What were the conditions that gave rise to it, was there one inquisition or several, was The Inquisition always about heretics, how many people died at the hands of the inquisitors, and is there something of The Inquisition left today? These are just some of the questions answered in Mr. Murphy's new book, God's Jury: The Inquisition and the Making of the Modern World.
It's good to talk.
