Abstract

In 1633, at the end of one of the most famous trials in history, the "Inquisition" condemned Galileo for contending that the Earth moves and that the Bible is not a scientific authority. This book examines the entire span of the Galileo affair from his condemnation to his alleged rehabilitation by the Pope in 1992.
