What is tolerance nowadays? Is it a moral virtue in the possessor, or is it a recognition of a necessity arising from an equilibrium of parties? It often seems to me that we speak as if it was the first, when actually it is the second. My liberalism admits to everyone the right to his own opinion and imposes on me the duty of teaching him what is best; but I am by no means sure that that is the genuine conviction of all my liberal friends. French liberalism does not convince me that it is universal. I am not quite sure how Frederick Harrison or Cotter Morrison would deal with me if they were in a majority. The possession of a clear and definite ideal of society seems to me dangerous to its possessors. The Mediaeval Church had such an ideal: the result was the Inquisition, which was generally approved by the common consciousness. In the period of the end of the fifteenth century the Papacy seemed to me to have wearied of the Inquisition which was not much supported. The Popes were comparatively tolerant to Jews, Marrani, Turks; they did not attack the humanists; they did not furbish up the old weapons and apply them to new cases—except in the recognition of the Spanish Inquisition by Sixtus IV, about whom I have probably expressed myself loosely, but I have not my volumes here and I do not exactly [recall] what I said. What I meant was that to Sixtus IV this recognition was a matter of official routine. To have refused it he would have had to enunciate a new principle and make a new departure in ecclesiastical jurisdiction. I should have honoured him if he had done so; but I do not think him exceptionally persecuting because he did not do so. He accepted what he found. My purpose was not to justify him, but to put him in rank with the rest. I think, however, that I was wrong, and that you are right: his responsibility was graver than I have admitted. I think he knew better.

The same thing is the case with Sixtus IVand the Spanish Inquisition. What you say has been said by Hefele and Gams andothers. They, at least, were in a sort, avowed defenders of the SpanishInquisition. Hefele speaks of Ximenes as one might speak of Andrewes or Tayloror Leighton. But in what sense is the Pope not responsible for the constitutionby which he established the new tribunal? If we passed a law giving Dufferinpowers of that sort, when asked for, we should surely be responsible. No doubt,the responsibility in such a case is shared by those who ask for a thing. Butif the thing is criminal, if, for instance, it is a license to commit adultery,the person who authorises the act shares the guilt of the person who commitsit. Now the Liberals think Persecution a crime of a worse order than adultery,and the acts done by Ximenes considerably worse than the entertainment of Romancourtesans by Alexander VI. The responsibility exists whether the thingpermitted be good or bad. If the thing be criminal, then the authoritypermitting it bears the guilt. Whether Sixtus is infamous or not depends on ourview of persecution and absolutism. Whether he is responsible or not dependssimply on the ordinary evidence of history.
