From the dj: “Galileo’s trial by the Inquisition is one of the most dramatic incidents in the history of science and religion. Today, we tend to see this event in black and white – Galileo all white, the Church all black. Galileo in Rome present a much more nuanced account of Galileo’s relationship with Rome. The book offers a fascinating account of the six trips Galileo made to Rome . . .”
