In 1543, Copernicus defended his hypothesis that the Earth is a planet and the sun a body resting near the centre of a finite universe.

Westman rejects the commonplace view that Copernicus distanced himself from the astrological beliefs of his time and also questions the widely held belief that Copernicus' primary intellectual influence was the astronomer Domenico Maria.
