Abstract

The year 2016 marked the 400th anniversary of the Catholic Church’s prohibition of Copernicus’s De Revolutionibus (1543) and condemnation of the idea of a moving earth as false and contrary to Scripture. Some institutions and scholars marked the occurrence with conferences, exhibitions, and publications. The present volume is one such example.
