Fig 5.12 – Copernican Revolution

Text: Pages 173 and 174

Copernicus (1473–1543), wrote The Revolutions of the Heavenly Spheres published posthumously, and dedicated to Pope Paul III. He proposed a Heliocentric world, not with man at the center, but with nature and the sun at the center of the universe. This “new world” represented the true divinity of God. The Copernicus Revolution created a “psychological shock” because the natural science authorities would begin to replace the Church hierarchy. It was now science not the Church that would create the “new world.” The reality was that Western civilization would never view itself the same in human history.
