Naturalmente todas estas experiencias, tan abundantes como subjetivas, no suponen un universo estadístico fiable. Sin embargo, poco después de su nacimiento, instituciones científicas dedicadas a la investigación de los fenómenos paranormales, como la SPR británica, realizaron interesantes encuestas aleatorias, tanto en Londres como en otras ciudades europeas.
En el llamado mundo de la Nueva Era existen grupos esotéricos que pretenden haber demostrado el poder psíquico del amor para influir sobre el crecimiento de las plantas, como en el caso de Feindhor, o la reducción de la delincuencia, como en el “Proyecto La Fuente” de Colin Bloyle. En este caso docenas de personas meditaban en torno a una fuente inglesa, para proyectar amor y positividad a toda la comunidad.
Until the late 12th century, the investigation of heresy was considered the responsibility of local churches and it was held that local secular authorities would prosecute heretics. However, in 1179, the Church's "grand program of sanctifying the world" saw the creation of The Third Lateran Council that included a canon condemning heretics. In 1184, Pope Lucius III issued the Ad abolendam, labeled "the founding charter of the inquisition," that called for those found as heretics by the local church to be turned over to secular courts. Finally, in 1199, Pope Innocent III equated heresy with treason and in 1208 called for a "crusade" against the Albigensians
Generally, inquisitorial courts functioned much like the secular courts of the time, though their sentences and penances were less cruel. A number of procedures and protections restricted the torture of the accused, although much torture could be inflicted, and capital punishment was executed by secular authorities due to the clerical prohibition on shedding blood. Torture was used to extract confession, rather than as a form of punishment as used by secular courts. Any confession made following or during torture had to be freely repeated the next day without torture or it was considered invalid. "Technically, therefore, torture was strictly a means of obtaining the only full proof available…[The inquisitors'] tasks were not only – or even primarily – to convict the contumacious heretic, but…to preserve the unity of the Church".

"...an early major source of anti-Inquisition propaganda happened to be Catholic in origin. With the outstanding exception of the Holy Roman Empire, every significant Catholic state in Europe, including France, was at some time hostile to Spain." Contemporary political scientist Niccolò Machiavelli (in The Prince) suggested that King Ferdinand of Spain (who originated the Spanish Inquisition) used religion to his political and financial advantage. Italians under Spanish rule repeatedly revolted against the imposition of a Spanish Inquisition (such as revolts in Naples in 1547). Unpaid Spanish and Germanic mercenaries of the King of Spain (Charles V, Holy Roman Emperor) sacked Rome ten years after Luther posted his theses, besieging the Pope and ending Rome's pre-eminence in the Renaissance. Italian diplomats expressed a low opinion of the Spanish and their Inquisition. Internal criticism of Spanish policies in the Americas was cited by foes of the Inquisition.
The two most significant and extensively-cited sources of this revised analysis of the historiography of the inquisitorial proceedings are Inquisition (1988) by Edward Peters and The Spanish Inquisition: An Historical Revision (1997) by Henry Kamen. These works focus on identifying and correcting what they argue are popular modern misconceptions about the inquisitions and historical misinterpretations of their activities. Kamen's 1997 book is updated and revised from an edition first published in 1965. Kamen takes the position that the Inquisition in Spain was motivated more by political considerations than religious, that the monarchs routinely protected those close to the crown, and that in Aragon large areas either defied or hindered its operation. Eric Rust of Baylor University describes Kamen's work as "historical revision at its best".
