    More Information:

    Marsollier (1647-1724). French historian, provost and later archdeacon of Usez. His histories are noted for their style, which was lively and flowing. Chalmers calls this anonymously issued book-- "A curious work, and in some respects a bold one." Caillet says,"Cette histoire est une des plus curieuses sur ce tribunal, c'est en somme un excellent abrégé du Directorium Inquisitorum de Limborch. Malgré cela, il fut jugé trop libre et mis â l'index. Ouvrage dirigé l'authorité papale."
