The Sky in a Room: Campanella's Apologeticus in defence of the pamphlet De siderali fato vitando
Editor's Note: Tommaso Campanella (1568-1639) was one of the leading figures of the late Italian Renaissance. His wide-ranging work, including the utopian The City of the Sun (1613-1614), was an attempt to identify a distinctive order and direction which might be imposed on Europe as a solution to religious schism and political and military conflict. After the publication of De siderali fato, the seventh book of his Astrologici, in 1629, Campanella was accused of heresy and was forced to write the Apologeticus to defend himself. Campanella's text is presented here together with the introduction and commentary presented by Germana Ernst in Bruniana and Campanelliana, anno III 1997/2, both translated by Noga Arikha.
