Not long after they had left, the Holy Hermandad (an association founded in Spain with its own police  force to track down criminals) came to the house and discovered the two bodies. The body of Don  Issachar was tossed on a dump; that of the Grand Inquisitor was buried in a beautiful church.  Already Candide, Cunégonde, and the old woman had reached a little town in the Sierra Morena  mountains and were resting at an inn. Cunégonde found that someone had stolen her money and jewels: they were now destitute. The old  woman was sure that the thief was a reverend Franciscan father who had occupied the same inn as  they had in another village. Candide recalled that Pangloss had often proved to him that the goods of  the earth belong to all men. According to this principle, he concluded, the priest should have left  them part of the money and jewels.
