ABSTRACT
This article explores the origins of the formation of the legend created around the life of William Lamport, an Irishman burnt at the stake by the Mexican Inquisition in 1659. In order to study the origin of the legend, an analysis will be provided of the Inquisition trial of another contemporary, and tried for having made declarations in favour of his compatriot. The study is based on an unpublished file of the National Historical Archive of Madrid. For the analysis, the author uses methodological reflections pertaining to cultural history, and particularly focuses on those elements that contribute to understanding the political culture of the modern period, which are present in the reconstruction of the Inquisition. The article therefore examines a series of important news items that circulated in the Atlantic world: the problems of dynastic succession, tensions of Spain with Portugal and England, and the circulation of forbidden books. Indications throughout the text open the possibility of a connection between Diego Nugent and William Lamport.
