Pubblicità

Michele Serveto, in francese Michel Servet , è stato un teologo, umanista e medico spagnolo.

Oltre che allo studio della Bibbia, si interessò a scienze come astronomia, meteorologia, geografia, giurisprudenza, anatomia e matematica; fu messo al rogo dai calvinisti. La sua esecuzione provocò un trauma nel mondo riformato, incrinandone il mito di terra della libertà, diversa dalla tirannia di Roma. Duraturi furono però gli esiti, poiché inaugurò il dibattito moderno sulla tolleranza e sulla libertà religiosa, che lo assunse a simbolo.

Frasi Michele Serveto

„I think it is grave to kill men, under the pretext that they are mistaken on the interpretation of some point, for we know that even the chosen ones are not exempt from sometimes being wrong.“

—  Michael Servetus
Context: Inherent of human condition is the sickness of believing the rest are impostors and heathen, and not ourselves, because nobody recognizes his own mistakes … If one must condemn everyone that misses in a particular point then every mortal would have to be burnt a thousand times. The apostles and Luther himself have been mistaken … If I have taken the word, by any reason, it has been because I think it is grave to kill men, under the pretext that they are mistaken on the interpretation of some point, for we know that even the chosen ones are not exempt from sometimes being wrong. Letter to Oecolampadius, an hebraist of Basel, as quoted by Francisco Javier González Echeverría, and translated by Otis Towns & Miguel González Ancín in the English "Introduction" at Michael Servetus Rresearch http://www.michaelservetusresearch.com/ENGLISH/
