Giordano Bruno An Apostle of Theosophy - Paperback

ABOUT THE BOOK
Giordano Bruno (1548-1600) was described by Hegel as a 'comet that flashed across Europe'. Uncompromising in his commitment to truth, this profound philosopher and religious reformer incurred the wrath of the Catholic Church for his attacks on Aristotelian logic and his championship of Copernican cosmology. He taught with magnificent eloquence the Immanence of God who is Universal Life; the eternity of the Spirit, being part of the Universal Life; and based on these two facts, a life dedicated to the True, the Good and the Beautiful. After lifelong persecution he was burnt at the stake as a heretic. In impassioned language, Annie Besant paints here a picture of Bruno's life and martyrdom that has tremendous relevance for these times of religious fundamentalism and ethnic hatred.
