This document was created to be a resource for information regarding the Galileo affair. In this document I intend to address the following questions:
Though this page is a work in progress which will be added to over time, I would like to begin by recommending a book, "The Crime of Galileo" by Giorgio de Santillana. It is a book which I believe firmly, gives for the most part, a refreshingly objective account of the events surrounding the Galileo affair. It is written by a man who was not Catholic, and definitely not overly fond of the Church.
In this three part series, Thomas Woods takes a look at the Galileo Affair, dispelling common myths and illuminating seldom heard facts regarding the topic. The Series, "The Catholic Church: Builder of Civilization" aired on EWTN. This footage is for educational purposes only. Used under the terms of United States Copyright Act of 1976, 17 U.S.C. § 107.
