About the Author
"Juan Antonio Llorente (1756 – 1823) was a Spanish historian and liberal activist.

He studied at the University of Zaragoza, and, having been ordained priest, became vicar-general to the bishop of Calahorra in 1782. In 1785, he became commissary of the Holy Office (Inquisition) at Logroño and, in 1789, its general secretary at Madrid." -- Wikipedia
