The Beata Dolores: the Inquisition’s true last victim
/

Legend often had it that the last victim of the Inquisition was a teacher named Cayetano Ripoll, but technically that wasn’t true. It was a blind nun from Seville known as the Beata Dolores. In 1781, she earned the dubious honor of being the true final victim. The circumstances were especially tragic. Listen and learn more.

A schoolmaster in Valencia, Spain, named Cayetano Ripoll is often cited as the last reported victim of the Spanish Inquisition when he was hanged in 1826 for heresy. It’s not entirely accurate, but not off-base either. What is unquestionable is that he was a defender of free-thinking and paid the ultimate price for it. Listen and learn more.
