Descrição do produto

Giordano Bruno is one of the great figures of early modern Europe, and one of the least understood. Ingrid D. Rowland's pathbreaking life of Bruno establishes him once and for all as a peer of Erasmus, Shakespeare, and Galileo, a thinker whose vision of the world prefigures ours.

By the time Bruno was burned at the stake as a heretic in 1600 on Rome's Campo dei Fiori, he had taught in Naples, Rome, Venice, Geneva, France, England, Germany, and the "magic Prague" of Emperor Rudolph II. His powers of memory and his provocative ideas about the infinity of the universe had attracted the attention of the pope, Queen Elizabeth—and the Inquisition, which condemned him to death in Rome as part of a yearlong jubilee.

Writing with great verve and sympathy for her protagonist, Rowland traces Bruno's wanderings through a sixteenth-century Europe where every certainty of religion and philosophy had been called into question and shows him valiantly defending his ideas (and his right to maintain them) to the very end. An incisive, independent thinker just when natural philosophy was transformed into modern science, he was also a writer of sublime talent. His eloquence and his courage inspired thinkers across Europe, finding expression in the work of Shakespeare and Galileo.

Giordano Bruno allows us to encounter a legendary European figure as if for the first time.

5.0 de 5 estrelas Bruno, A Man of Our Times 21 de outubro de 2016
Por Michelone - Publicada na Amazon.com

This book is much more readable than Wm. Boulting's. Ms. Rowland explicates each of the cosmolgist's writings and takes the reader on a complete tour of Bruno's wanderings. Almost every chapter begins with a poem, some by Bruno and others by other writers. The one by Giles of Viterbo is quite beautiful, speaking of the footprints of God in the forest, being vestiges of His presence with Diana, the Moon looking over from above. Bruno's poetry is also beautiful as is all his writing. The chapter entitled Magic is difficult and I will reread it. Given the times, there is no doubt that Bruno was a heretic and stubborn to admit guilt....and when he does, it is too late. He spends 8 years in prison, probably being tortured to no avail. I began to identify with the hero and together with what's in the news with the current campaign for president and Donald Trump's comments, amounting to Louis XVI's "After me, the deluge", I began to feel very paranoid, indeed. The final chapters deal with the trial and sentencing but don't dwell on Bruno's burning at the stake. Galileo and Kepler had obviously read and been influenced by Bruno. They had the advantage of the telescope, which verified many of the Nolan's pronouncements. Gian Lorenzo Bernini's Fountains of the Four Rivers, in which an obelisk stands above a mountain with "a population of a stone plants, animals and sea monsters." Atop stands a stone dove with olive branch, peace after the 30 Years War. Rowland says the dove "celebrates another kind, the partnership of natural philosophy--science--and religion." Bernini had no doubt that he was inspired by divine inspiration....that science and religion belonged together." Beautiful thoughts beautifully expressed.

5.0 de 5 estrelas Well written and Accurate 27 de abril de 2014
Por Julia Jones - Publicada na Amazon.com

Rowland is a disciple of Hillary Gatti and it shows. Her knowledge of Bruno is impeccable and she writes beautifully. Bruno is returning now and this book is essential to knowing and understanding him, and understanding the forces and "scholars" who have worked so hard to discredit him all these years. Rowland banishes them nicely and restores the respect to Bruno he justly deserves. An essential book for those who would understand Bruno.

4.0 de 5 estrelas A Man We Should Remember Better 18 de julho de 2010
Por Timothy Haugh - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: Capa dura Compra verificada
Giordano Bruno was a name I had come across in various histories of Christianity and/or the Renaissance that I've read through the years but I knew very little about him other than that he was considered a heretic and burned at the stake. When I saw this book, I thought it would be a good opportunity to find out a bit more about someone who was little more than a name to me. Reading this turned out to be quite an eye-opening experience.

On a purely informational level, there is a lot here. Rowland shared a number of anecdotes about Bruno's life which have stuck in my mind: his getting caught with a forbidden book in the latrine, the mockery of his high-flown rhetorical style by the English, his own fondness for mockery and cursing even in the prisons of the Inquisition.

But more telling than the individual anecdotes are the larger ideas that span Bruno's life story. I was particularly fascinated by his expertise in memorization techniques. In a time when books and writing ability were rare, the ability to memorize vast amounts of information was an important skill. Bruno, apparently, was highly prized as a teacher of his own memorization technique which allowed him to make a living during his years as a wanderer across Europe.

And, of course, there was the development of his philosophical ideas. He is probably best known for developing the idea of an infinite universe where the stars could be individual solar systems with their own planets. This alone had implication with his ultimate conflict with the Church. But he also asserted theological ideas that were clearly heretical in the eyes of Christianity, such as that Christ committed a mortal sin in the Garden of Gethsemane. Granted, the Inquisition was a horrible thing, but it becomes clear from reading this that Bruno did himself no favors when facing the Cardinals. It is perhaps during this last section that the dichotomy of Bruno's character most comes to the fore: philosophical egoism vs. true son of the Church. It is the tragedy of Bruno's experience that he could not find a way out of a situation that should have been manageable for him.

It is clear in this book that Bruno had a lot more impact on his better-known peers than he is given credit for. Kepler and Galileo both credit him as an influence. (In fact, shortly before his arrest, Bruno applied for the mathematics professorship at Pisa that went to Galileo.) Professor Rowland should be commended for bringing this important person back before us. If she goes a bit overboard with unenlightening epigraphs and quotations, that is a small price to pay for the wealth of knowledge gained.

It is unfortuante that the world seems to have forgotten one of its great figures, one who dared to think in modern ways. This is an excellent start on understanding this complex thinker and why he is a model for us today.
