Summary

A centerpiece of Blackwell's investigation into the conflict between Galileo and the church is his interpretation of Letter on the motion of the earth, a brief treatise by Paolo Foscarini, heretofore neglected, arguing for the compatibility of the Copernican system with the Bible. Blackwell argues that the maintenance of ecclesiastical authority, not the scientific issues themselves, led to the tragic trial. Acidic paper.
