The inquisitorial seat of Coimbra of the Portuguese Inquisition, after brief existence in 1541-1547, was permanently created in 1565 and existed until the final supression of the Portuguese Inquisition in 1821.

List of the Inquisitors of Coimbra presented below is taken from Collecciao dos Documentos, Estatutos, e Memorias da Academia Real da Historia Portugueza, Lisboa Occidental 1723, p. 470-485 (with some minor corrections), and therefore, does not include any appointment later than the date of its publication. Furthermore, it indicates only the dates of inquisitorial appointments to the Tribunal of Coimbra without indicating the dates of the end of the service of the respective inquisitors. The dates of the next appointments on the list are of no help here, since the standard composition of the tribunal of the Portuguese Inquisition included as many as three inquisitors at one time.

et tamen e summo, quasi fulmen, deicit ictos
invidia inter dum contemptim in Tartara taetra
invidia quoniam ceu fulmine summa vaporant
plerumque et quae sunt aliis magis edita cumque
