torture as poking with soft cushions and forcible seating in a comfy chair.

An awful time in Jewish and general history, the Spanish Inquisition was commenced by Queen Isabel and King Ferdinand of Spain. Jews were systematically and specifically persecuted, forced either to convert to Roman Catholicism or be killed by the monarchy.
The Spanish Inquisition may have affected Christopher Columbus to be quiet about his own Jewish heritage.
