The Spanish Inquisition is the institution that caused one of the most terrible periods in history, which began in the 12th century. Several centuries later, this institution was linked to a 21st century video game in a strange and most likely wrong way. Having a later origin, the first videogames usually took movies as their inspiration, but over time this path became two-way and today it is common for the 7th art to be based on videogames to project its narrative. However, there are other cases in which the influence is by mistake, such as what just happened with Dragon Age: Inquisition and the most recent film starring acclaimed actor Russell Crowe (300). We are talking about The Pope’s Exorcist, a film based on true events that reveals the case of Father Gabriele Amorth (Russell Crowe), one of the highest-ranking clergy the Church has ever had and who carried out hundreds of exorcisms in his lifetime. real.

Is Dragon Age canon in the Inquisition? Movie like that projects it
Without going into spoiler territory, at one point what is supposedly the symbol of the Court of the Holy Office of the Inquisition, better known as the Spanish Inquisition, is shown. However, what is striking is that the symbol was recognized by the audience and they pointed to it as the symbol of the Inquisition faction in Dragon Age: Inquisition, which is not the same as the actual Inquisition; in fact it is unrelated. As you can see below thanks to Twitter user Kelgrid, in the film a symbol is seen engraved on a surface and highlights an eye and a sword and is referred to as alluding to the Inquisition, but it is very different from the real symbol, a seal characterized by the olive tree, the cross and the sword.
Can we talk about how “The Pope’s Exorcist” (yeah that film with Russell Crowe) uses the inquisition symbol from DRAGON AGE INQUISITION as the real-world-spanish-inquisition symbol?

For what it’s worth, the official Seal of the Tribunal of the Holy Office of the Inquisition is kinda hard to make punchy. pic.twitter.com/L9hHXsHMLx— Stephen Thomas Flint (@StephenThomasF3) May 12, 2023
Image: BioWare It is not known if this was deliberate and there was some association with BioWare, although honestly it seems that it was more of a mistake. It is important to mention, however, that many users believe that it is a mistake due to a lack of deep search, since when searching for Inquisition Symbol on the Internet the first results are those of the Dragon Age: Inquisition and Warhammer 40,000 logos. And it is believed that this is what those responsible for the film did.
