GOD: new evidence


What really happened to Galileo? ('Bad Faith' #10)

What's in the series?      Previous: Galileo's book that insulted the Pope      Next: Newton, Boyle and the Royal Society

Everyone knows that Galileo, the heroic scientist, was persecuted by the Christian church because he stood up for the truth: he was put on trial, imprisoned, tortured, and perhaps even executed.

The truth is different: Galileo was put on trial in Rome in 1633. He was found guilty. But he was not tortured, nor put in prison, nor executed. He was put under house arrest, where he could carry on with his scientific work until he died naturally in 1642.

With contributions by Professor Ted Davis (Messiah College); Dr Allan Chapman, (Oxford University), author of 'Slaying the Dragons: destroying myths in the history of science and faith' and 'Stargazers: Copernicus, Galileo, the Telescope and the Church;' and from James Hannam, author of 'God's Philosophers: how the Medieval World Laid the Foundations of Modern Science.'
