Example text

Europe was preoccupied by a disastrous fourteenth century. During this time, instead of pursuing learning, Europe pursued war. The Hundred Years' War was a conflict between two households for the throne of France, an eastern household and a western household that ruled over England as well as parts of Normandy and Brittany. The war was a series of battles with intermittent intervals of peace; the first battle was fought in 1337 and the last battle was fought in 1453. And aside from the self-inflicted wounds of war, the plague of the 1340s ravaged all of Europe.

Through a set of unfortunate circumstances spanning 5 years, the accusation came to trial in 1621. Throughout those 5 years, Kepler worked furiously at great expense to have the charges dismissed. He fired off letters reminiscent of his Spock-like debates to all authorities that might be of assistance in dismissing the charges. He once more sought the assistance of his alma mater.

This great man deserved far more than the circumstances of his times permitted him.
