Story of Giordano Bruno who was burnt at the stake in 1600.

Notes

  • Dedication: Dedicated to the many writers who have given their lives during the last few years in the fight against Fascist terrorism.
  • Author's note: A definite link between Bruno and the victims of Fascism is provided by the fact that Gentile, the philosopher of Fascism and Minister of Education in Italy, has directly attacked Bruno and defended the act of the Inquisition in burning him.
