Campanella formulated the first scientifically based socialistic system — one that furnished a model for subsequent ideal communities. Bacon focused on the duty of the state toward science, and his projections for state-sponsored research anticipated many advances in medicine and surgery, meteorology, and machinery. Both of these classics mirror their period's idealism and its revolutionary trends in thought.
Dominican friar Tomasso Campanella (1568–1639) rejected Christian revelation and sought truth in reason and nature. An ardent defender of Galileo and his philosophy, Campanella was imprisoned and tortured by the Inquisition. During his 27 years of confinement, Campanella reverted to Roman Catholic orthodoxy and was ultimately freed by papal intervention.
