The Inquisition (Turkish translation)
- Giordano Bruno:
Giordano Bruno (1548 – 1600) was an Italian philosopher, mathematician, poet, cosmological theorist, and Hermetic occultist. He is known for his cosmological theories, which conceptually extended the then novel Copernican model. He proposed that the stars were distant suns surrounded by their own planets, and he raised the possibility that these planets might foster life of their own, a cosmological position known as cosmic pluralism. He also insisted that the universe is infinite and could have no "center". The Inquisition found him guilty, and he was burned at the stake in Rome's Campo de' Fiori in 1600.
