Giordano Bruno: Rebel Monk

Disinfonauts! I recently had the once in a lifetime chance to go to Italy and pay homage to one of my personal heroes. While in Rome I visited the site of the immolation of Giordano Bruno, a man who was once a monk who then followed a new path that resurrected many Gnostic and Hermetic ideas. I made this video to pay homage to his memory in hopes that we will all remember to live our lives with passion, integrity and a willingness to fight for what is true and good in this world.

    Gabriel, have you done much exploration into Raymond Lull?

    • Gabriel D. Roberts

      I haven’t. Does the exploration require gear? Perhaps a diving license?

      • Calypso_1

        I think perhaps the Urim and Thummim may have required something along those lines.

    HIghly recommended reading: “Giordano Bruno and the Hermetic Tradition” by Francis Yates.

    • Gabriel D. Roberts

      I believe Yates is cited within the doc. I pulled much of the dialogue from The Master Gane in which Yates is cited more than once.

    Awesome! He’s one of my heroes too! And I’m going to Italy next year as well! Might have to pay homage as well.

    Wow 137 charges of Heresy! Good work. So do you think there is a Secret underground brotherhood of Brunos?
