Galileo Faces the Inquisition: Tried by the Holy Office at Padua - for Astral Fatalism
Editor's Note: When the Franciscan friar Father Giuseppe Antonino Poppi discovered this material in the Sartori archives at Padua, he had difficulty in believing it. He found it confirmed, however, by two sworn depositions at the State archives in Venice. He reported his findings in 1992 at the quattrocentenary celebrations at Padua, in honour of Galileo assuming the mathematics chair there in 1592. A report appeared in the Italian newspaper La Republica 22nd June 1992 and Poppi's book Cremonini, Galilei et gli Inqusitore del santo a Padova appeared the next year: excerpts from pp. 43 and 51-5 are here used.
