Giordano Bruno was born in 1548 in Italy. He was a Dominican friar, a philosopher, astronomer and mathematician. The most notable of his theories were those of an infinite universe and a multiplicity of worlds, in which he rejected the traditional geocentric model and even went beyond the Copernican heliocentric theory. Bruno was burned at the stake in February 1600 for his unorthodox ideas and refusal to renounce them. This book is a collection of his writings.
