Following his arrival in Portuguese India, Charles Dellon, a French surgeon, was imprisoned by the Portuguese Inquisition in Goa for denying the validity of baptism and blaspheming Catholicism.

In this work, Dellon thoroughly describes his trial and incarceration, giving an account of the types of treatment he and other prisoners received during the Inquisition.
