On 17 February 1600 in Rome, on the Campo de’ Fiori, the greatest Italian philosopher of the age as well as an excommunicated Dominican friar, Giordano Bruno (1548–1600), from the city of Nola in the kingdom of Naples, had his mouth stuffed, was stripped naked, tied to a stake and burnt to ashes by the ‘Holy’ Inquisition, Sancta Romana et Universalis Inquisitio. In his last moments, he refused to look at the crucifix held out to him by his torturers.
