Did you know? Giordano Bruno was executed for the “crimes” of blasphemy and atheism


Did you know that the Italian philosopher Giordano Bruno, a proponent of heliocentrism who held that the universe was infinite and had no centre, was accused of blasphemy and atheism by the Inquisition and finally burned at the stake on February 17th 1600 at Campo dei Fiori in Rome for having denied the divinity of Jesus-Christ, the virginity of Mary, transsubstantiation and the Trinity?
