You can put any spin on it<quoted text>
Discrediting the Black Legend brings up the sticky subject of revisionism. Re-investigating history is only invalid if it puts an agenda ahead of reality. The experts once true believers in the Inquisition myth were not out to do a feminist canonization of Isabella or claim that Tomas de Torquemada was a Marxist. Henry Kamen of the Higher Council for Scientific Research in Barcelona said on camera that researching the Inquisition's archives "demolished the previous image all of us historians) had."
Inquisition pale in comparison to the 150,000 documented witch burnings elsewhere in Europe over the same centuries.
And the future of the Black Legend? For many it may continue to hold more weight than reality.
