Francisco De Goya
Through his etchings, the Spanish artist (30 March 1746 – 16 April 1828) bore witness to the Inquisition's atrocities. He was tried and forced to wear the brown habit as a sign of heresy. He finally went into exile in France to escape death.
Until 1870 the Catholic Church used its own army to arrest, kill, torture and kidnap adults and children that didn't follow its dogma.
