On the basis of newly available archival evidence, Shea (history of science, U. of Padua) and Artigas (philosophy and theology, U. of Navarra, Pamplona, Spain), reexamine the famed clash of Galileo (1564-1642) with the Catholic Church for espousing the view that the Earth orbits the Sun. Challenging several scholarly and literary interpretations of this conflict between science and religion, they argue that a much more complex relationship existed then and now. Illustrations feature key players and venues in Galileo's trial. Science History Publications is a division of Watson Publishing International.
