I realize I'm suuuuuper late to this party but I recently rediscovered an article I read shortly after I watched the first episode of the new "Cosmos" series and I wanted to link it for your edification.
I thought it was weird that the episode took this long and drawn out turn to discuss how shamefully the Church treated this Christ-loving scientific visionary I'd never heard of named Giordano Bruno. Turns out I had a reason to be suspicious because much of it was really misrepresented and glossed over very important details.
Here's two good articles on it all: Article 1 Article 2
Oh, and it was this article "How our botched understanding of 'science' ruins everything" that lead me back around to the original article.
You should read it too.
