Ideas of Copernicus
He believed the world revolved around the sun, instead of the sun revolving around the world. He challenged the churchs beliefs and it scared many people because they didn't know who to believe.
Impact of Ideas on Society
Nicolaus Copernicus discovered the idea of the heliocentric model, but many people didnt't believe it because it went against what the Catholic church had said. He also wrote a book named "On the Revolutions of the Heavenly Spheres", this book opened up the discovery for people and other astronomers built off of the idea and proved the discovery was actually correct.
Nicolaus Copernicus ideas challenged traditional thoughts of society by...
Copernicus's ideas frightened the church and the protestants. Many people were also afraid to believe in the theory because that would mean they would be going against the church and God.
Nicolaus Copernicus said...
"Those things which I am saying now may be obscure, yet they will be made clearer in their proper place." To me, this quote means that Copernicus was really confident in his discovery and he was sure of it that people will find it true one day.
