"Sidereus Nuncius (usually Sidereal Messenger, also Starry Messenger or Sidereal Message) is a short astronomical treatise (or pamphlet) published in New Latin by Galileo Galilei in March 1610. It was the first published scientific work based on observations made through a telescope, and it contains the results of Galileo's early observations of the imperfect and mountainous Moon, the hundreds of stars that were unable to be seen in either the Milky Way or certain constellations with the naked eye, and the Medicean Stars that appeared to be circling Jupiter.[1] The Latin word nuncius was typically used during this time period to denote messenger; however, albeit less frequently, it was also interpreted as message. While the title Sidereus Nuncius is usually translated into English as Sidereal Messenger, many of Galileo's early drafts of the book and later related writings indicate that the intended purpose of the book was "simply to report the news about recent developments in astronomy, not to pass himself off solemnly as an ambassador from heaven."[2] Therefore, the correct English translation of the title is Sidereal Message (or often, Starry Message)."--Wikiped, Nov/2014

Novembre 1618: la comparsa di tre comete non solo eccita i timori dei superstiziosi, ma tiene "in continuo esercizio i primi ingegni d'Europa". Ottobre 1623: si conclude la stampa del Saggiatore di Galileo Galilei, colui che gli Accademici Lincei salutano come "lo scopritore non di nuove terre, ma di non più vedute parti del cielo". Spaziando dalla genesi del suono all'origine del calore alla composizione della luce "in atomi realmente indivisibili" Galileo entra pubblicamente nella disputa contro "Lotario Sarsi Sigensano, l'astronomico e filosofico scorpione", cioè il gesuita Orazio Grassi. Nel ripercorrere la vicenda delle sue scoperte Galileo delinea insieme una difesa del proprio operato e l'apologia della ricerca scientifica, sempre più insofferente dei vincoli imposti da autorità teologiche e politiche. Nel tempo in cui, come scrive il poeta John Donne, "la nuova filosofia mette tutto in dubbio", Galileo si affida alla matematica come a una guida sicura per uscire da "un oscuro laberinto" e comprendere il Grande Libro della natura; ma "l'artista toscano" non dimentica per questo il ruolo dell'esperimento e l'apporto della tecnica. Geometria, esperienza e "discorso" (cioè arte dell'argomentazione) cooperano così alla confutazione dell'errore in un'impresa che il singolo studioso può tradire solo col rendere il suo intelletto "mancipio - cioè servo - dell'intelletto di un altr'uomo"

Galileo's daughter : a historical memoir of science, faith, and love by Dava Sobel( Book )

1 edition published in 1999 in Spanish and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The son of a musician, Galileo Galilei (1564-1642) tried at first to enter a monastery before engaging the skills that made him the foremost scientist of his day. Though he never left Italy, his inventions and discoveries were heralded around the world. Most sensationally, his telescopes allowed him to reveal a new reality in the heavens and to reinforce the astounding argument that the Earth moves around the Sun. For this belief, he was brought before the Holy Office of the Inquisition, accused of heresy, and forced to spend his last years under house arrest." "Of Galileo's three illegitimate children, the eldest best mirrored his own brilliance, industry, and sensibility, and by virtue of these qualities became his confidante. Born Virginia in 1600, she was thirteen when Galileo placed her in a convent near him in Florence, where she took the most appropriate name of Suor Maria Celeste. Her loving support, which Galileo repaid in kind, proved to be her father's greatest source of strength throughout his most productive and tumultuous years. Her presence, through letters which Sobel has translated from their original Italian and woven into the narrative, graces her father's life now as it did then." "Galileo's Daughter dramatically recolors the personality and accomplishment of a mythic figure whose seventeenth-century clash with Catholic doctrine continues to define the schism between science and religion. Moving between Galileo's grand public life and Maria Celeste's sequestered world, Sobel illuminates the Florence of the Medicis and the papal court in Rome during the pivotal era when humanity's perception of its place in the cosmos was being overturned."--Jacket
