Michael Servetus
I have seen with my own eyes how the pope was carried on the shoulders of the princes, with all the pomp, being adored in the streets by the surrounding people.
Servetus quotes
I do not agree or disagree in everything with either one party or the other. Because all seem to me to have some truth and some error, but everyone recognizes the otherís error and nobody discerns his own.
Servetus
In the Bible, there is no mention of the Trinity. . . . We get to know God, not through our proud philosophical concepts, but through Christ.




Servetus Michael quotes
Michel Servet[us], . . . geographer, physician, physiologist, contributed to the welfare of humanity by his scientific discoveries, his devotion to the sick and the poor, and the indomitable independence of his intelligence and his conscience. . . . His convictions were invincible. He made a sacrifice of his life for the cause of the truth.
Servetus Michael
From a historical perspective, Servetus died in order that freedom of conscience could become a civil right of the individual in modern society.
Michael Servetus quotes
Michael Servetus, alone, but trusting in Christís most sure protection.
Michael Servetus
I consider it a serious matter to kill men because they are in error on some question of scriptural interpretation, when we know that even the elect ones may be led astray into error.
Servetus Michael quotes
Servetusís death was the turning point in the ideology and mentality dominating since the fourth century.
Servetus
The Spaniard, Servetus, contends in his tract that there is but one person in God. The Roman church holds that there are three persons in one essence. I agree rather with the Spaniard.
