Pedro de Arbués

Pedro de Arbués was an official of the Spanish Inquisition who was assassinated in Saragossa Cathedral in 1484 in an alleged plot by conversos and Jews. He was very quickly made a saint by popular acclaim and his death greatly assisted the Inquisition and its Inquisitor General, Tomás de Torquemada, in their campaign against heresy and crypto-Judaism.
