Eminent Person Introduction

Hello everyone,

The eminent person I am doing this year is kingĀ Ferdinand II of Spain. He was the king of Spain during the Spanish inquisition. We all know about the Spanish inquisition. We know it was the church that started it, but it was Ferdinand who made it legal. My main question is: Did he choose to allow it, or was he forced to push the bill through? We are not very connected beyond gender, but it has been something I have wondered about ever since I knew about the Spanish inquisition. Through this, I want to learn the truth, and have out in the definite, but I also want to improve my public speaking skills. Learning how to perfect my interview skills would also be useful for the dream job I have imagined for myself. Long writing pieces would be another thing I would like to improve on. This is all for now. Leave a comment if something needs confirming.

  1. Hey Chris,

    This is an interesting eminent person choice. I would say Ferdinand is not a good person, but still eminent. Your question about whether he truly wanted to pass the bill to approve the Spanish Inquisition is also intriguing to me. I would have liked to know more about Ferdinand, because while most know more or less about him, there may have been some things most people wouldn’t know that might shed some light on him.

    In my experience, connections can go beyond just the physical like gender or birthplace. Do you two have any common ideas (hopefully not murder and slavery)? Or maybe you both are interested in royalty?

    Overall, I think in the future you should expand on your thoughts so that we can further see into why you want to study this person.

    Lastly, nice picture!
