It represents a substantial contribution to Galilean historiography and our understanding of how the Galileo myth came to be."—Michael Segre, author of In the Wake of Galileo "This book is an original and important addition to the literature on Galileo and seventeenth-century science.

This book on Galileo Galilei sits somewhere in the middle. The author spends time telling readers how important Galileo is to the world of science, yet glosses over his accomplishments with quick, one-sentence explanations that fail to educate exactly why Galileo's discoveries were important/5(54).

An exceptionally rare and valuable copy of a 17th-century book by Galileo Galilei — seemingly signed and hand-illustrated by the great astronomer and thinker — was hailed as the find of the century. According to Galileo, those who say his conclusions oppose Biblical texts misinterpret the Bible.

He says that his findings support those of Copernicus, an earlier proponent of the heliocentric model of the solar system. The Assayer () This was a book written to disprove a treatise by Orazio Grassi regarding the nature of comets. (Contains spoilers) In a very catchy manner, the book tells Galileo’s life story, covering major events starting from his childhood.

In addition to his scientific findings, the book also briefly covers Galileo’s personal life. Galileo had a passion for astronomy and physics and supported the work of Copernicus/5.

Galileo belonged to the secretive Linxean society, a group of scholarly individuals. This book describes the group and especially their most famous member and his contributions to modern science and natural history. Banned Books Week was begun inbut book banning has a much longer history.

Infor example, he participated in a panel discussion on Galileo at Fordham University, and despite the skepticism of actual scholars, his expertise was trusted in the rare books and museum worlds until his discovery.

Galileo - Galileo - Galileo’s Copernicanism: Galileo’s increasingly overt Copernicanism began to cause trouble for him. In he wrote a letter to his student Benedetto Castelli (–) in Pisa about the problem of squaring the Copernican theory with certain biblical passages.
