Kresta Comments: The Church, Science and Galileo
Did the Church really silence Galileo?
When opponents of the Catholic Church claim the Church is against science, the story of Galileo is the first place they look. The story goes that the Inquisition forced Galileo to recant many of his views the Church saw as incompatible with faith, culminating with an official recantation on June 22, 1633. We’ll look at the real story of Galileo with Fr. Dom Paschal Scotti.
