What’s God Got to Do With It?
In 1633, the Tuscan scientist Galileo Galilei was brought before the Roman Inquisition to be tried for heresy. Galileo’s crime was publishing an account of heliocentricism, the concept that the Earth is neither the center of the universe nor is it fixed in place, both of which are contrary to scripture. He was pronounced guilty and condemned to house arrest for the remainder of his life.
