Galileo’s Crime


Galileo’s Crime






The Quest for Knowledge & the Holy Inquisition

“GALILEO’S CRIME” tells the tale of the “father of science,” and the heavy price he must pay when his revolutionary views clash with those held by the most powerful institution of his time: the Roman Catholic Church. Caught between his faith and his reason, Galileo must defy the Church he cherishes in order to make known what he has seen with his own eyes: “It moves”—the earth revolves around the sun. Although 400 years old, and set amid the Holy Inquisition, this story of Right vs. Might is still vitally important today.
