A defense of Galileo, the mathematician from Florence which is an inquiry as to whether the philosophical view advocated by Galileo is in agreement with or is opposed to the Sacred Scriptures

Despite extensive study of the Galileo affair in recent years, there are still some important documents relating to the case which have received little attention in the English-speaking world. In his translation of Thomas Campanella's Apologia pro Galileo Richard J. Blackwell presents for the first time in English a reliable and highly readable translation of this important and neglected work. Campanella, the maverick Dominican sought to head off the confrontation between Galileo and the theologians by defending Galileo's right to develop, debate, and publish his ideas freely. By making available at last a well-documented English version of this treatise - one in which the theological dimensions of the dispute receive their clearest presentation yet - Blackwell makes a worthy contribution to a heightened awareness of the doctrinal issues role in the Galileo affair.
