Written in 1616 while Campanella was imprisoned by the Inquisition, the Apologia pro Galileo was banned in Rome at the time of its publication in 1622, therefore having little influence on the outcome of the Galileo case. However, then as now it stands as an important document calling for intellectual freedom as related to the Galileo case in particular, and as a plea for freedom of thought in general. Readers will appreciate the accuracy and readability of this translation, as well as Blackwell's extended introduction that provides ample background information relating Campanella and his Apologia to the Galileo affair. In addition, extensive notes identifying Campanella's use of sources and the persons he mentions in the Apologia are included.
