Michael Servetus: Intellectual Giant, Humanist, and Martyr
Michael Servetus was probably unequaled in depth and breadth of the ideas, which revolutionized thinking about religion and its tenets. Servetus was a central figure in history whose fate and writings directed other people to rethink social structures, legal systems, the place of the individual in society and his/her rights to basic freedoms. In Michael Servetus, M. Hillar describes Servetus' life, his trial, martyrdom, the basic tenets of his religious beliefs, and the inspiration which he gave to Sebastian Castellio for rethinking the whole issue of freedom of inquiry. Based on original documents and writings, this book summarizes all new discoveries about Servetus made in the last half century. It also includes a number of pictorial presentations to add visual interest and understanding of Servetus and his time.
