I’m pretty excited about this book and I haven’t even gotten into it yet!
I’ve read a lot about Galileo over the years. This looks good. I like that “in context” part. The book doesn’t just deal with issues, but about the personalities and competing interests of the day.
Galileo Revisited: The Galileo Affair in Context by Paschal Scotti
Inevitably people who attack the Church will bring up Galileo. When the issue of Faith and Science comes up, Galileo’s name is soon to follow. However, they usually have no idea what really happened with him.
