Autos of Faith

The autos of faith consisted of more or less public ceremonies where the judgments of the Holy Office (an institution created by the Inquisition in the 16th century) were read and enforced. Over time, the autos of faith became a great spectacle, performed with great pomp and according to a rigorously established ceremonial. These ceremonies were attended not only by religious and civil authorities (often the king himself was present), but the entire population of the city who shouted in joy as the damned were burned alive.
