Under the direction of Pope Clement VIII, the Catholic Church begins a seven year trial against Giordano Bruno.

An Italian Dominican friar and philosopher, Giordano Bruno's crime is arguing that the sun is actually a star and that the universe must contain other worlds inhabited by intelligent beings.

The Roman Inquisition will find him guilty of heresy and he burned at the stake.
