5. Das Leben des Galilei

Das leben des galilei

Reasons to study this work
______________________________________________________________________________________________________

The pressure put on Galilei to revoke his ground breaking astronomical work is reminiscent of what is happening today on an international level, so very relevant to contemporary concerns.

The interest of the work
______________________________________________________________________________________________________

So the earth is no longer the centre of the universe following the proofs put forward by Galilei.  This does not go down well with the Catholic church who puts increasing pressure on him to renounce his discoveries despite the fact that when seen through his modelling it is impossible to deny their truth.    Will he give in to the pressure?   Is it worth dying for the cause of science?
