He was sentenced to life imprisonment by the inquisition for his support for the Copernican theory that the sun was at the centre of the solar system.

His entertaining lectures attracted a large following and he was able to spend the next 18 years pursuing his interest in astronomy and mechanics.   "His parents recognised their child`s innate intelligence and talents and so made sacrificed to have him educated."
