  The Spanish Inquisition (Monty Python) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Nobody in their right mind could have expected this form of Spanish Inquisition, where the Inquisitors use such torture methods as poking the accused with soft cushions and forcible seating in a comfy chair to force a heretic (an elderly housewife) to recant.
In the original Monty Python's Flying Circus TV episode (episode 15), the Spanish Inquisition makes several "unexpected" appearances, until at the very end of the show they are caught by surprise when a barrister in a court session at the Old Bailey says "I didn't expect a kind of Spanish Inquisition".
The popular "Life of Python" sketch, featured in the BBC comedy program, Not The Nine O'Clock News, included a line in which 'General Synod' exclaims, in response to a question of how he expected the public to react to his film "Well, I certainly didn't expect (slight pause) the Spanish Inquisition".

 The Spanish Inquisition: Killing Non-Christians for the Mother Church
The Spanish Inquisition was loosely connected with the Holy Office of the Inquisition into Heretical Depravity (which lacked the manpower/resources to conduct the inquisition properly).
For 600 years the Inquisition was a real and dangerous presence in the lives of millions and, in the minds of those the Church persecuted as enemies of the true faith -- Christian dissenters, secular freethinkers and Jews -- the ultimate icon of religious tyranny.
During the 15th- and 16th-century Inquisition in Spain, which was primarily motivated by a profound anti-Semitism, the main targets were conversos -- Jews who had converted to Christianity in recent years, often at the point of a sword, or their descendants.

He said something to the effect that Monty Python sort of made it O.K. to be smart.
Cross said that he remembered being really young and seeing the Pythons do a sketch, and then talk about the sketch in the middle of the skit, and then continue the sketch, you know, and then end the sketch without an ending.
Right before I did the Python piece, I was writing a new introduction to “Forty Stories,” by Donald Barthelme, and I think that he and Python share a lot of DNA.
