The Spanish Inquisition was a civil, and religious court made to judge to see if the Jews and Muslims who converted to Roman Catholicism were true Roman Catholics. It was reinstated in 1492, and didn't officially end until 1834.
The Spanish explorers founded for new explorers to help find some new trade routes in Asia, and some new land. They had goods and resources from any place in the empire. Any other religions were treated as inferiors.
