The Inquisition

The Inquisition was a time when the Jews and Muslims were forced out of many different places. It started in the Holy Roman Empire. The Holy Roman Catholic church wasn’t happy with all the heretics. So they forbid certain teaching styles, hoping to calm things down. But this didn’t work as planned. So they forced all the heretics to leave Rome. Not long after that Isabella and Ferdinand II, who ruled Spain, had their own inquisition, but this was done differently than most inquisitions because it was completely separate from the Holy Roman Catholic church and was targeted only towards the Muslims and Jews. They did however let some of them stay, but only if they became catholic. This forced all the Jews and Muslims to leave Spain. Sadly when they got to their next destination they were kicked out of there too. This went on during the 19-20 centuries.
