What does it mean? Hello dear native speakers I read this sentence from an article: He was burnt at the stake during the Inquisition, in part for daring to question Earth's unique status. What does " in part for" exactly mean here? Thanks

It means that there were other reasons as well.

'in part' means 'partly'. There were several reasons he was burnt, this reason was just one of them (or one part of all the reasons)
