Albert Moquin Thomas Williams PHSC 121-B03 Short-Response Prompt 2 Giordano Bruno was a 1600 astronomer who was burned at the stake by the Roman Catholic church for his teaching that the Earth orbits the Sun, or so the textbook says. There are two flaws to this textbook teaching given by the presentation. One, what is said by the textbook, and two, what is omitted. What was said is flawed by the fact it may not be true. One is unsure whether heliocentrism was considered heresy in 1600 by the Roman Catholic Church. It is also unclear if Giordano Bruno was actually charged for this teaching or if his execution was fueled by other problems.
