Pope Paul III issues the Apostolic Constitution Licet ab initio, reinstituting the Inquisition and giving it the name Supreme Sacred Congregation of the Roman and Universal Inquisition.

The Cardinals and other staff who are part of the group have the task "to maintain and defend the integrity of the faith and to examine and proscribe errors and false doctrines."

Pope Pius X will rename it to Supreme Sacred Congregation of the Holy Office in 1904; it will be renamed again to Sacred Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith on December 7, 1965, at the end of the Second Vatican Council.
