Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I didn't want to assume any parts of the medieval trials were better.  The purpose of the essay is to put the US in roughly the same place as the Inquisition and I didn't want to be open to charges that I was assuming better processes for the latter or worse ones for the former.  I tried to go strictly by what was reported and not infer anything from it.
