The Galileo Affair: What It Was Not (MP3)
The Galileo Affair is one of the most studied events in history, yet the facts of the event, and more importantly what they mean, are hotly contested.
It is the go-to example for the enemies of Catholicism who seek to portray the Church as oppressive and opposed to scientific thought.
This engaging and informative talk exposes the dishonesty of that version, refutes many of the claims commonly attached to the story, and offers a clear view of what the Galileo Affair was—and what it was not.
Catholics will come away with a knowledge of the principle players, events, and motives so that they understand and can explain what the Church did—and why.
