Τhe Grand Inquisitor (Based on the book by F. Dostoyevsky)

Based on the book by F. Dostoyevsky
In the tale, Christ returns to Earth at the time of the Inquisition. He performs a number of miracles and the people recognize him and adore him, but he is arrested by Inquisition leaders and sentenced to be burnt to death the next day. The Grand Inquisitor visits him in his cell to tell him that the Church no longer needs him. The main portion of the text is devoted to the Inquisitor explaining to Jesus why his return would interfere with the mission of the Church.
