For the last 400 years, Galileo has fascinated and inspired writers, theologians, playwrights, historians and scientists. As the founder of modern science, and one of the embodiments of the conflict between science and faith, he remains one of the most fascinating figures of his age. This biography of Galileo paints a picture of Renaissance Italy, of its cultural richness and its political and religious intrigues. Galileo's development of the telescope revolutionized astronomy, but put him into conflict with the Catholic Church, and led to his excommunication in 1633.
