IPTC INFO
CaptionGiordano Bruno was imprisoned in Rome for seven years from 1593 when he was transferred from his heresy trial in Venice into the hands of the Roman Inquisition until his auto-da-fé in 1600. His trial took place between 1593 and the censoring of his books in 1597. That’s where the summary ends. In 1598 the Curia left Rome following Clement VIII to the Duchy of Ferrara which he claimed for the Papal States after the death of the childless Alfonso II d’Este Duke of Ferrara. They left Bruno idling in jail. By the time the trial resumed with interrogatory number 20 in February 1599 Bruno was willing to offer a partial abjuration of the beliefs deemed heretical in return for his neck. He reiterated that willingness during the 21st interrogation in early September 1599. Then on September 16 1599 he changed his mind. He sent the Pope a memo reasserting all of his beliefs and refusing abjuration. The Pope was not pleased. When Bruno stood his ground refusing to abjure within the 40 day window the Holy Office had allotted him the deal was sealed. At dawn on February 17 1600 he was led to Campo de’ Fiori with manacles around his wrists and a bit in his mouth to keep that forked tongue of his from poisoning any listeners with his heresies. There he was stripped naked tied to a stake and burned alive. His execution was controversial at the time and has remained so. That long-forgotten trial summary that was rediscovered in 1940 had actually been rediscovered first in 1886 by Benedictine friar Gregorio Palmieri keeper of the Vatican Archives. The conflict between the Holy See sole remnant of the Papal States since Italy’s final unification in 1870 and the secular Kingdom of Italy was in full force. The summary was seen as a major hot potato that Italy’s humanists and Freemasons would use to rally opposition to the Holy See; thus it was hidden in the Pope’s private archive — i.e. the Vatican Secret Archive —
