Given the complexity of the subject and the public nature, I might suggest that they consider using the opensource and free Hypothes.is platform as an academic discussion tool for allowing everyone to highlight, annotate, and respond to the text and conversations?
I suspect the Hypothesis team would be happy to do a quick run through of their platform as well as potentially creating a private group if they preferred.
I’m still tinkering with mine and should have a Micropub based version using IFTTT and Webhooks done soon.
I thought this was important all on its own. Did they put this before everything? Was he just really religious?–Tmoon95 annotation on September 9, 2015
This statement also has a lot to do with the culture of the time: The Tribunal of the Holy Office of the Inquisition (Spanish: Tribunal del Santo Oficio de la Inquisición), commonly known as the Spanish Inquisition (Inquisición española), was established in 1478 by Catholic Monarchs Ferdinand II of Aragon and Isabella I of Castile. It was intended to maintain Catholic orthodoxy in their kingdoms and to replace the Medieval Inquisition, which was under Papal control.
Recall that Ferdinand and Isabella were the reigning monarchs who funded Columbus’ voyages.
Over time I’ve kept up with adding to it, and even within the last month that post is still helping to benefit others on the service:
