"Mr. Redondi's story is brilliantly told. . . . The captivating style, the masterly reconstruction of plots and passions, the ability to vividly paint princes and popes, cardinals and philosophers, heretics and scientists, will no doubt guarantee the success of this book with students and the general public."--Pietro Corsi, The New York Times Book Review
