Michael Servetus.

Michael Servetus, Spanish Miguel Servet (born 1511?, Villanueva or Tudela,
Spain—died Oct. 27, 1553, Champel, Switz.), Spanish physician and theologian whose unorthodox teachings led to his condemnation as a heretic by both Protestants and Roman Catholics and to his execution by Calvinists from Geneva.
