RT Book, Whole DB /z-wcorg/ DS http://worldcat.org ID 54400596 LA English T1 Retrying Galileo, 1633-1992 A1 Finocchiaro, Maurice A.,, PB University of California Press PP Berkeley YR 2005 SN 0520242610 9780520242616 0520253876 9780520253872 AB "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. Galileo's condemnation set off a controversy that has acquired a life of its own and that continues to this day. This book is the first to examine the entire span of the Galileo affair from his condemnation to his alleged rehabilitation by the Pope in 1992. Filled with primary sources, many translated into English for the first time, Retrying Galileo will acquaint readers with the historical facts of the trial, its aftermath and repercussions, the variety of reflections on it throughout history, and the main issues it raises."--Jacket.
