Ash Wednesday Supper, The

Giordano Bruno, The Ash Wednesday Supper: Bruno’s dialogue defends the new Copernican astronomy, but also presents our world as a mere speck in an overwhelmingly immense universe. Bruno develops this cosmology together with a philosophy, almost a theology, of nature. God pervades the infinity of the universe with a world soul that animates the infinite number of individual bodies, announcing the dawn of a peaceful civilization where all things are linked in a harmonious unity.
