In 1512, Copernicus published his first manuscript. This is how his fame began to spread.
Ooooh! Look at my new manuscript called Commentariolus. It is about the sun being in the middle of the universe.
Copernicus's work received a lot of criticism from people such as Martin Luther, and John Widmanstad. A local school teacher even made a rude play about him!
Why don't people like my manuscript?
In 1539, Georg Joachim Rheticus prints Copernicus's Narratio Prima, or First Report. After publishing the First Report, Rheticus continues to publish the rest of Copernicus's works.
