This Roman Catholic church is located on the summit of Mount Tibidabo in Barcelona. Built in various stages between 1902 and 1961, the bottom half of the church reflects a Romanesque fortress, while the top is neo-gothic in design, accessible by two grand stairways. .
Stained glass windows adorn the Church, some of which are dedicated to Paul the Apostle, John Bosco and Pope Pius X. Sitting above the church like a crown, is a large bronze statue of Jesus.
In 1605, the Papal Conclave had the first and only recorded injury. The Cardinals had a fight over nominees for pope, so loud that onlookers outside the palace could hear them brawling, and one Cardinal ended up with several broken bones.
this day in 1600, the Italian friar, astronomer and philosopher
Giordano Bruno was burned at the stake for heresy. Bruno’s ideas were
controversial for his day, but are now hailed as precursory to modern
scientific understanding. Bruno proposed the concept of an infinite
universe populated by other intelligent life and rejected traditional
geocentric astronomy. He agreed with Copernicus that the planets revolve
around the Sun, but expanded on this by suggesting that the Sun is just
another star. For these unorthodox views, which challenged traditional Christian ideas about the
universe, Bruno was found guilty of heresy by the Roman Inquisition and
burned at the stake. For his refusal to renounce his beliefs, Giordano
Bruno is often remembered as a martyr for free thought.
“Perhaps your fear in passing judgment on me is greater than mine in receiving it” - Giordano Bruno to the judges upon hearing his death sentence
