Michael Servetus een Spangiard Amsterdam, Around his waist were tied a large bundle of manuscript and a thick octavo printed book. Humanist and MartyrFulton, John F.
These were the last words of Michael Servetus, physician and theologian, condemned to death in after being branded a heretic. Servetus was born in in Tudela, Spain. From a young age he developed radical ideas concerning key Christian doctrines.
He set out on a path as an intrepid reformer of the Christian faith, making more enemies than friends in the process. At the mere age of nineteen he was publically accused of heresy after publishing On the Errors of the Trinity The title speaks for itself.
With the Spanish Inquisition now on his tail, he fled to France where he took a new name; Michael Villanovanus. For the next twenty years he lived under this new name largely without detection, moving around France but spending most of his time in Paris followed by Lyons.
He became a physician and, for the most part, his life restiturio quiet, aside from being placed on trial for heresy in Paris in On this occasion it was due to his views on astrology. Servetus, however, succeeded in talking his way out of prosecution by drawing on the works of Plato, Aristotle, Hippocrates and Galen in his defence with great aplomb.
Nonetheless, his reputation was again tarnished and he was removed from his position as lecturer, moving to practice medicine in Lyons as a result. Years later, Servetus, seemingly discontented with state of the reformation of Christianity, once again began to express his views on the matter freely. He opened a correspondence with Calvin, sending him manuscripts that would later become part of Christianismi Restitutio.
In Calvin wrote restitutil one of his allies on Servetus: The two men had reportedly arranged to meet around this time but it is of no surprise that Servetus did not appear. He was arrested in Vienne but escaped. His effigy was then burned along with five hundred copies of the book.
After escaping his initial arrest in Vienne, Servetus was captured some three months later in Geneva as he made his way to Italy. For some reason he had attended a church service on a Sunday where he was recognised and reported to Calvin.
The tactic of hiding christiaanismi plain sight had failed him.
The way in which Servetus was treated by both the member of christixnismi church and the Inquistion was condemned by many religious worshippers of the day and arguably bolstered the growth of Unitarian beliefs. He will be remembered as having been utterly fearless in his beliefs. The University of Edinburgh copy is of christisnismi interest because the first sixteen pages have been removed. The sixteen pages have been reconstructed in manuscript style, possibly under the instruction of Calvin himself.
