I am unsure on wether or not this is the right place to post this. If it isn't, please move this thread to the right section. This Wednesday, France2, one of the main TV Channels of France, is going to start the diffusion of an eight epiosde saga called Inquisitio. And according to what I read from an article in Le Figaro Magazine (a magazine derived from the newspaper Le Figaro) and what I saw from the teasers announcing the diffusion of the series, the setting doesn't make sense and the series is full of clichés and misconsceptions. According to the summary of Le Figaro Magazine, the story takes place in 1370, as the West is divided by the Great Schism between Avignon and Rome. The Black Death is decimating the population of the town of Carpentras. The Grand Inquisitor named by the Avignon Pope sees the Plague as a punishment from God and sets out on a Campaign to fight sin and heresy. In this, he is opposed by a Jewish Doctor, who wants to treat the plague to eradicate it. Both, however, will also find themselves entangled in a plot set up by the Roman Pope to eliminate his rival in Avignon. To not see all the clichés in that summary, one has to be blind. According to what is said, there are many scenes of torture and rape, a scene where one sees Pope Clement VII (the Avignon Pope) in his bath with nude young maidens and another scene where supporters of Urban VI (the Roman Pope) inoculate the Plague on people living in Carpentras, as per orders of Catherine of Sienna. The latter scene is a complete fail at history: I don't think inoculation existed in the XIVth Century for one (I may be wrong on this, but I think it came later) and even if it did, it wasn't the first thing that would have crossed someone's mind (notably because of the dangers of the Plague), not to mention it totally doesn't match the character of St. Catherine of Sienna. As for the scenes of rape and torture linked to Inquistion, they remind me more of the Spanish Inquisition which only existed in Spain and came out one century later... The worse part, in my eyes, is that the diffusion of that saga is pure intellectual dishonnesty. I, as someone who studies History, can see all the mistakes and errors in such a series. But some people, who do not have my historical culture, will see it as a truth as it will be realized on a main TV Channel, one of the most watched and one of the most serious.
