I often say that Candelaio is the best First Play ever written, much better than Titus Andronicus, or But Bruno made errors he would not have made were he to have acted more outside the pulpit, or the debate stage in Oxford and Cambrai. My daughter took her husband to half, and her sister-in-law to the other half. Bruno has some funny Latin retorts by the schoolboys to their Latin teacher and would-be abuser.

Giordano Bruno — February 17,born Filippo Bruno, was an Italian Dominican friar, philosopher, mathematician and astronomer, who is best known as a proponent of the infinity of the universe. His cosmological theories went beyond the Copernican model in identifying the Sun as just one of an infinite number of independently moving heavenly bodies: He was burned at the stake by authorities in after the Roman Inquisition found him guilty of heresy. After his death he gained considerable fame; in the 19th and early 20th centuries, commentators focusing on his astronomical beliefs regarded him as a martyr for free thought and modern scientific ideas.
Recent assessments suggest that his ideas about the universe played a smaller role in his trial than his pantheist beliefs, which differed from the interpretations and scope of God held by Candelsio. More recent assessments, beginning with the pioneering work of Frances Yates, suggest that Bruno was deeply influenced by the astronomical facts of the universe inherited vruno Arab astrology, Neoplatonism and Renaissance Hermeticism.
