The year 1553. Miguel Servet is condemned to burn at the stake by the Inquisition. Behind this sentence lurks an unjust judgement, a betrayal, and a cursed book.

Religious wars, heretical ideas, a persecuted man, the Inquisition, an unjust judgement, a cursed book... The advances of the Renaissance, the discovery of the circulation of blood, the persecution of heretics, the Inquisition’s witch hunts and executions... In the mid-sixteenth century, during the Protestant Reformation, a man will challenge religious and secular powers, campaigning for freedom of worship and the right to express one’s opinions.

El médico hereje is a story full of intrigue, excitement, passion, and betrayal, chronicling the trial and execution at the stake of Doctor Miguel Servet in 1553.
