Lista degli Inquisitori di Évora

Dizionario di eretici, dissidenti e inquisitori nel mondo mediterraneo [ISBN 978-88-942416-0-0]

The inquisitorial seat of Évora of the Portuguese Inquisition was created in 1536 and existed until the final supression of the Portuguese Inquisition in 1821.

List of the Inquisitors of Évora presented below is essentially taken from Collecciao dos Documentos, Estatutos, e Memorias da Academia Real da Historia Portugueza, Lisboa Occidental 1723, p. 398-445 (with some 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 Évora 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.

invidia quoniam ceu fulmine summa vaporant
