Death by effigy : a case from the Mexican Inquisition

Tells the story of the presentation of an effigy on a church door with a name attached to it. (This was interpreted by everyone in the community as an accusation of heresy against the person named.) The paraphenalia of the Mexican Inquisition was stolen to make the effigy, and the Mexican inquisition pursued the fabricators of the effigy for several years and nine distinct trials of slander
