Book Description

In 1553, Dr. Michael Servetus was executed by burning at the stake by Swiss Calvinists. John Calvin branded Servetus as a heretic based on correspondence they had. Calvin even said, "If Servetus comes to Geneva, I shall never let him leave alive-if my authority has any weight." Servetus was also denounced as a heretic by French Catholics who questioned him, but had to let him go for lack of evidence. Then, thanks to the submission of 17 of the letters that were part of his correspondence with the Protestant Calvin, the Catholic Inquisition convicted Servetus of heresy and sentenced him to death. He managed to escape only to be arrested by the Protestant City Government in Geneva. For the second time, the Spanish scholar was tried and sentenced to die, this time by Protestants.

Why did the gentle Spanish scholar cause such an uproar in his times? Why did he incur the wrath of so many powerful men such as Calvin himself? This book seeks answers to these questions.

5.0 out of 5 stars A good introduction to Servetus and his ideas March 7, 2013
Verified Purchase
Servetus and Bruno are fellow martyrs to Christian hypocrisy. The former to the Calvinists,the latter to the Catholics. It is not only right, but essential that we re-examine their ideas and ideals.

By burning its free-thinkers, the Christian church won out in the short term but arguably has signed its own death warrant as reasonable people vote with their feet.

The latest revelation has been the changes which were made to the Codex Sinaiticus by the Athanasians to bring it into line with "orthodoxy."

The Codex and many other early manuscripts omit passages referring to Jesus' being part of the Trinity. In fact the Trinity is not mentioned. Some books omit reference to the ascension of Jesus into heaven, and key references to the Resurrection, which is regarded as being essential for Christian belief.

I am learning about Michael Servetus and was so appreciative of this one being available for my kindle. I suppose he was a heretic to the Church of the time but has been a saint for modern Unitarians.

2.0 out of 5 stars Interesting history, but... November 13, 2012

the author of this book wants to promote the unitarian belief, which certainly is a heresy.

If you want to examine such a doctrine, such as this, don't do it by glorifying a man that believed it, but go to the scriptures and prayerfully figure it out.
