与其在无知中苟活,不如在明悟中赴死。

——尼古拉·哥白尼[来源]

尼古拉·哥白尼(Nicolaus Copernicus)(1473年2月19日-1543年5月24日)是文艺复兴时期波兰数学家、天文学家,他提倡日心说模型,认为太阳是宇宙的中心。1543年哥白尼临终前发表了《天体运行论》一般认为他的著作的是现代天文学的起点。它开启了哥白尼革命,并对推动科学革命作出了重要贡献。

生平编辑

哥白尼是家中四个孩子里最小的。他的父亲是波兰贵族,母亲是德国富商的女儿。和他的哥哥(后来成为一名牧师)、姐姐(后来成为一名修女)一样,哥白尼接受过人文主义教育,成为了一名牧师。他在波兰克拉科夫大学,学习亚里士多德托勒密和其他人的理论。毕业后,哥白尼希望在瓦米亚作为神职人员工作,但他先去了意大利学习法律。

在意大利学习期间,哥白尼发现他更喜欢听人文学科的讲座,并发现了他的爱好是天文学。他的导师是Domenico Maria Novara da Ferrara。1500年,哥白尼访问了梵蒂冈,并被介绍给圣殿骑士。在加入他们之后,他被告知要对自己的发现保密。

A day after, however, he enlightened the public on science and mathematics at the Il Campidoglio, encouraging them to question past teachings, as he could not keep his findings to himself. He went on to urge the crowd to visit him or his fellow scholars if they wished to know more.[1]

As soon as the Borgia – the leading house in the Templar Order – heard of this, they sent their guards to kill Copernicus and the other scholars. The Assassin Ezio Auditore da Firenze watched the scene unfold and, upon realizing their common enemy, came to Copernicus' aid.[1]

Copernicus admitted his affiliations to the Templars to Ezio, though the latter was willing to help Copernicus reach a safe location. Upon arriving in a secluded building in the Antico District, Copernicus asked Ezio to deliver some documents to his fellow scholars, which would inform them of the danger they were in. Though doubtful if he could trust him, Ezio agreed, and aided most of the scholars in going into hiding.[1]

The Assassin returned some time later, and by then, Copernicus had concluded that the Master of the Sacred Palace was most likely behind the plot to kill him. Ezio sought out the Master and heard from him that there were six executioners walking around Rome, searching for the scholars. Ezio rushed to take these executioners down, and returned to Copernicus with the confirmation that his suspicion had been correct.[1]

Copernicus, however, was persistent in going out into the open to study a lunar eclipse. The Master of the Sacred Palace seized this opportunity, and sent a Papal Guard to kill him. Ezio followed and killed the Master of the Sacred Palace before returning to Copernicus, with whom he took down the assailants. The pair then went their separate ways, with Copernicus staying behind to study the eclipse.[1]

Following their encounter, Copernicus became an ally of the Assassin Order, and was assisted in further astronomical studies with Novara via the Order's protection, with one instance including the Assassins Francesco Vecellio and Cipriano Enu.[2]

Copernicus left Rome a year later, and applied for an extension of his education abroad to learn medicine in Padua. While there, he learned Greek, adding a fourth language to the list of ones he was fluent in, after Polish, German and Latin.

In 1503, Copernicus returned to Prussia and worked as secretary for his uncle, Lucas Watzenrode, the Bishop of Warmia. In his spare time, he pursued his astronomical interests, drafting his heliocentric theory and observing the sky at night. His theories were not published until shortly before his death in 1543.
