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." ;
