Nicolas of Cusa also said "Terra non est centra mundi." It was his belief that the earth was not in fact the center of the universe, but that our earth was just one of many and that each star in the sky was perhaps another sun (he even hypothesized that there might be life be life on these other earths, making him one of the first alien proponents). His views might have been right, but was definitely not accepted church doctrine.
Still, he was a likable guy (and, better yet, had the ear of the Pope) so his views were considered eccentric rather then dangerous. In the century or so between his death and Galileo’s birth the church obviously changed it’s mind.
