He proposed that the stars were distant suns surrounded by their own planets , and he raised the possibility that these planets might foster life of their own, a philosophical position known as cosmic pluralism. He also insisted that the universe is infinite and could have no "centre". Starting in , Bruno was tried for heresy by the Roman Inquisition on charges of denial of several core Catholic doctrines, including eternal damnation , the Trinity , the divinity of Christ , the virginity of Mary , and transubstantiation. The Inquisition found him guilty, and he was burned at the stake in Rome's Campo de' Fiori in After his death, he gained considerable fame, being particularly celebrated by 19th- and early 20th-century commentators who regarded him as a martyr for science , [6] although historians agree that his heresy trial was not a response to his astronomical views but rather a response to his philosophical and religious views.
