The Trials of Galileo

T1108401921
The Trials of Galileo focuses on the events surrounding Galileo’s trial for heresy in 1634, and how he misjudged the politics and thinking of the time. In 1610, Galileo looked through his telescope and discovered incontrovertible proof that the earth revolved around the sun, and not as the Church taught, that the earth was the centre of the Universe. By publishing his findings, he challenged both the teaching and the power of the Church. While his discovery has become fundamental to modern science and beliefs, at the time he was considered too much of a danger to the Church’s authority to be left unchallenged.
