This lecture attempts to reveal that the Inquisition and the Renaissance were two aspects of one phenomenon, which is the halting emergence of a new entity, the territorial state. The lecture first describes the Inquisition and how it affected the sixteenth-century Renaissance. The element of violence, or killing people, is also examined. The second part of the lecture has a brief word about the creation of the Inquisition. It reviews two important elements that resulted from the Inquisition and what happened to the Inquisition once it had been invented. The lecture ends by examining certain states, including France and the papal state in Italy.

Keywords:   Inquisition, Renaissance, territorial state, element of violence, creation of the Inquisition, papal state, important elements
