The Chronicle Herald (our local paper) has a regular feature called "This Week in History" and recorded the following on April 17, 2010.
In 1233, the Dominicans were established in France as operators of the Inquisition by a decree of Pope Gregory IX. Their methods included torture and execution, usually by fire. Before long they became known as "God's dogs".
The Dominican Order or Dominicans is a Catholic Religious order approved by Pope Honorius III (1216-1227) on December 22, 1216. More information on this worldly organization is available on Wikipedia (www.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dominican_Order).
For those not familiar with the history of the Inquisition and the cruelties that were directed by the Popes and carried out by local bishops, priests and nuns, which killed millions of people, we invite you to read the articles Popes and the Princes of this World and The Mystery Babylon listed on this website.
For a better understanding how the people of this world have been deceived and by whom, we encourage you to read all of the pages and articles of this website and welcome your questions. Please use the Contact page for this purpose.
