Scouring Books: The Earth Moves

The Earth Moves
by Dan Hofstadter

Originally published in 2009, this book covers Galileo's battle with the Roman Inquisition. Galileo has been one of my favorite historic/scientific figures. He's certainly well-known, but I think he's one of those people that school has tended to de-emphasize in recent decades; in fact, much of classical learning almost no longer exists, so my personal interest is mostly self-initiated, and another of the things I've been working on.

Bookshelf status: unread.
