Short biography
Copernicus was apparently fluent in several languages but his written communications were mostly in Latin.
He studied law and medicine at Bologna and Padua and received his doctorate of canon law in Ferrara. However, mathematics and astronomy were always a great interest to him and his achievements in the field of observational and mathematical astronomy are the accomplishments for which Copernicus is remembered today.
