Henry Charles Lea (September 19, 1825 – October 24, 1909) was an American historian, civic reformer, and political activist. His father, Isaac Lea (1792–1886) was a distinguished naturalist and member of the American Philosophical Society, and publisher. Isaac Lea was descended from a Philadelphia Quaker family, and had been born in Wilmington, Delaware.
He also describes the Inquisition in Malta, the Canary Islands, Mexico, Peru, New Granada and the Philippines. He demonstrates how some of the individuals entrusted with implementing the Inquisition abused their powers, and how the Inquisition in the Spanish colonies prevented the efficient running of governmental administrations. According to Lea the Inquisition persisted from the sixteenth right up to the nineteenth century.
