ResumenThe relationship between the Spanish Inquisition and medical practitioners has been considered traditionally from the same perspective - the healer as victim of the inquisitorial machine. Since the birth of inquisitorial studies in the early nineteenth century, many scholars have approached this subject from a multiplicity of angles. This general tendency should nor be a surprise, because throughout the more than three~century life of the HoIy Office, numerous cases of physicians, surgeons, apothecaries and orher healers figure prominently among the thousands of victims of its activities. There is, however, a less researched side to the relationship between the Spanish Inquisition and medical practitioners which is, nonetheless, of great interest. This is in reference to the existence of physicians and surgeons who worked for the Holy Office. At the same time, by studying the encounter of the healer with the Inquisition some issues emerge of great interest in furthering knowledge of the reality of medical practice in the society of imperial Spain, especialty the connections between different medical practitioners and between them and their patients.
