Galileo is the name often invoked by those who say science and religion are in opposition. But is that really the lesson to be drawn from the life of Galileo? In this new work, Father Paschal Scotti delves into the “Galileo Affair”. No other work has brought together such a complete description of the historical context of the controversies surrounding Galileo in its political, cultural, philosophical, religious, scientific and personal aspects like this new volume. In addition to covering the whole of Galileo’s life, as well as his condemnation by the Inquisition in 1633, this book also includes a full historical discussion of the relationship between religion and science.
