Aguilar de Nerha escaping an auto-da-fé

An auto-da-fé (English: act of faith) was a ritual of public penance of condemned heretics.

The auto-da-fé was originally a ritual used by the Spanish Inquisition, in which the accused would prove their good faith. However, the proceedings often ended with the accused being condemned to death, in some cases by burning at the stake. The term therefore came to refer to the burning itself.[1]


In 1492, the Spanish Assassins Benedicto, Aguilar de Nerha and Maria were subjected to the auto-da-fé in Seville by Tomás de Torquemada and the Spanish Inquisition. While the Mentor Benedicto was executed, Aguilar and Maria were able to free themselves and fight their away out of Seville to escape.[1]

During the French Revolution, auto-da-fé took on the meaning of a revolutionary act of faith directed against Christian clerics.[2]
