Disclaimer: There are about 74 different ways I'm too ignorant to vouch for any of this.

"When physicists translated a 13th-century Latin text into modern equations, they discovered that the English theologian who wrote it had unwittingly predicted the idea of the multiverse in 1225. While the work probably won't advance current models, it does show that some of the philosophical conundrums posed by cosmology are surprisingly pervasive."
