Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0268010323, Paperback)After the publication of the second English edition of this book, the opening of the archives of the Congregation of the Doctrine of the Faith (formerly the Congregation of the Holy Office), which occurred in 1998, brought to light important new documents on aspects of the trial of Galileo and on steps taken by the Church in 1757. New historical research, especially that of Francesco Beretta, on procedures of the Holy Office and into the legal aspects of the Inquisition, has provided important material for a better interpretation of the decisions taken by the Catholic Church in 1616 and 1633.
The third English edition of Galileo: For Copernicanism and for the Church takes advantage of this new research.
". . . Deals with Galileo's attempts to have Copernicanism at least tolerated and his consequent endeavors to save the Catholic church from making a damaging mistake. . . . Despite Fantoli's modesty in describing his aims, this book is one that any specialist in the history of science could learn from." -Nature
