With the main charge against Bruno being his believing in plurality of words, essentially means that the man was burnt alive for believing in the existence of aliens, other planets and ET civilizations.

Nowadays people are being accused of bullying by those who actually are biased through their ignorance and lack of knowledge. Making psychological identification of accusers could bring interesting premise (major or minor, it is irrelevant here) useful to reach a conclusion regarding inquisition.

Imprisonment, trial, and execution, 1593–1600

During the seven years of his trial in Rome, Bruno was held in confinement, lastly in the Tower of Nona. Some important documents about the trial are lost, but others have been preserved, among them a summary of the proceedings that was rediscovered in 1940.[32] The numerous charges against Bruno, based on some of his books as well as on witness accounts, included blasphemy, immoral conduct, and heresy in matters of dogmatic theology, and involved some of the basic doctrines of his philosophy and cosmology. Luigi Firpo speculates the charges made against Bruno by the Roman Inquisition.

Bruno insisted on continuing the defence of his publication. Was the refusal of the right to take sacrament a consequence of his insistence on defence?

His tongue imprisoned means cut off.
