Short-Response Question 2 Prompt: Karsten Masinick 9-30-19 PHSC 121-A01 LUO The first flaw in this is what is actually stated in textbooks. It is unclear whether or not the Roman Catholic Church considered heliocentrism to be a heresy in 1600. It is unclear whether or not Bruno was specifically charged with teaching that the earth moved around the sun. In other words, what little the book included about Bruno may not be true. This is a major flaw because facts are presented in textbooks about Bruno, yet they are not certain what is the truth about why he was charged for heresy. A big problem with the textbook information about Bruno is about how much important details had been left out about Bruno and his life. Bruno was a Catholic priest during the inquisition, yet he also embraced pantheism. He also tried to promote a cult of sun worshippers.
