The Spanish theologian Juan Caramuel y Lobkowitz also opposed hylomorphism in physics, and conceived of astronomy as a mathematical science with its own celestial mechanics.

The Grimaldi patronage enabled him to complete a detailed lunar map, which he included in his highly influential Almagestum Novuman attempt to reconcile traditional astronomy with new discoveries.

Galileo also says that it was highly improbable that God should have commanded the sun alone to stand still, and have allowed the other stars to pursue their course, as all nature would have been deranged by it without any occasion, and his belief was that God had enjoined a temporary rest on the E so GALILEO GALILEL whole system of the universe, at the expiration of which all the heavenly bodies, undisturbed in their mutual relations, could have begun to revolve again in perfect order: I am very much in the ‘in principle’ camp.


His opponents, knowing that he favoured the opinion of the double motion of the earth, and thereby- attacked the Ptolemaic and Aristotelian principles, and per- ceiving since the universal recognition of his observations that they could never combat him successfully on the field of natural philosophy, are trying now to make a shield for their false statements out of a fictitious piety and the authority of Holy Scripture.

Throughout the early modern period, there was surprising consistency on one peculiar point in the understanding of Biblical inspiration. In Italy, gradual reform took place on at least two levels. Moreover, the logical infer- ences from Jupiter’s moons must surely stare every thoughtful man in the face, and so indeed they did in a way very unwelcome to the scientific conservatives.

Second, Bellarmine is also concerned in the book to respond to the heretical movements of his day, and not merely to take a side in disputes between orthodox Catholics. Moreover, no argument could be drawn from an unanimous opinion of the fathers, for some of them spoke of the sun as stationary, others of the primum mobile. Galileo had not the slightest knowledge of the secret con- spiracy which was plotting against him, and was first roused from the security into which he had been lulled by the bril- liant success of his visit to Rome by a letter from his friend there, Cigoli the painter, of i6th December, i6ii.

But this is not the case with the question of the double motion of the earth, for it had not come up at all at that time, and it could not occur to the holy fathers to dispute it, for the current opinion was in entire agreement with the literal meaning of the Bible.

Whatever despotism might have prevailed in the seventeenth century, Spanish science no longer suffered from institutional suppression, but from a cultural conservatism exemplified not only by hardened scholastics, but by the popular classes who resisted new cosmologies long after the intellectual community had accepted them. So if we say that Bruno was prosecuted for publicly asserting that Earth is one planet among several, we’re misunderstanding the situation and we run into difficulty explaining the non-prosecution of Copernicus.

Having begun his classical and mathematical education in Krakow, Copernicus studied in Bologna from toand returned to Italy in to study medicine at the University of Padua. Inthe French Jesuit Claude Richard became the chairholder of mathematics, with the establishment of the Reales Estudios. All motion, in contemporary physics, is relative motion.


Feser on this, except to try and discredit him. It was placed beyond all doubt that our planet was not the centre of all the heavenly bodies, since Jupiter’s moons revolved round him.

Thisjjiemorable letter of Galileo’s soon brought the court of Tuscany to a decision.

What do you say to the leading philosophers of the faculty here, to whom I have offered a thousand times of my own accord to show my studies, but who with the lazy obstinacy of a serpent who has eaten his fill have never consented to look at planets, nor moon, nor telescope?
