Systema cosmicum by Galileo Galilei( )

9 editions published between 1635 and 1965 in 3 languages and held by 245 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Galileo Galilei's (1564-1642) Dialogue Concerning the Two Chief World Systems was first published in Italian in 1632 (Florence). Because Galileo's comparison between the Copernican and the traditional Ptolemaic systems had caused outrage among the Catholic clergy, the book was placed on the Index of Forbidden Books. Fortunately, the manuscript was adopted by scholars throughout Europe. The Elzeviers' Latin edition, titled Dialogus Systema Mundi was published in 1635, and contains a beautiful title page, as well as a portrait of the author

Apologia per Galileo by Tommaso Campanella( Book )

5 editions published between 1996 and 2001 in 3 languages and held by 53 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La presente edizione è curata da Paolo Ponzio (Università di Bari) che si occupa della filosofia del tardo Rinascimento, con particolare riferimento al pensiero filosofico di Campanella. L'introduzione fornisce un primo approccio tematico all'opera, mettendo a confronto il testo campanelliano con lo scritto che già Tobia Adami indicava quale naturale appendice dell'Apologia: la Lettera sopra l'opinione de' Pitagorici e del Copernico (1615) di Paolo Antonio Foscarini (1562 ca.-1616), il cui testo viene qui pubblicato in appendice. Negli apparati sono riportate le parole chiave del testo, una bibliografia delle opere del filosofo di Stilo e degli studi riguardanti il pensiero di Campanella e di Foscarini, e un indice dei riferimenti biblici dell'Apologia. Il testo latino a fronte riproduce, con le dovute emendazioni, l'editio princeps pubblicata a Francoforte nel 1622

Dialogue sur les deux grands systèmes du monde by Galileo Galilei( Book )

2 editions published in 1710 in Italian and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Voici, enfin traduit en français, un texte fondateur de notre science et de notre culture. Avec ce livre, notre monde a définitivement « pris le large », comme dit Brecht. Nos amarres ont été larguées, la Terre s'est dérobée sous nos pieds, elle s'est mise à flotter dans les cieux, et les « cieux » même ont disparu. Ce qu'avait annoncé Copernic, Galilée l'accomplit, pleinement conscient de la tension entre le monde nouveau qu'il découvre et les limites de l'homme.Galilée perçoit la nouvelle figure de l'Univers et la rend sensible. Il perçoit aussi la nouvelle figure du savoir et en dessine les contours. Se moquant des pédants qui refusent d'en croire leurs yeux, il proclame son mépris pour le « monde du papier » où se réfugient les philosophes commentateurs. Et pourtant il dit sa compassion pour les esprits en déroute qui, privés de système et de maître, tentent désespérément d'étayer et de colmater le palais ancestral.L'écriture du Dialogue communique le plaisir de ce savoir nouveau, le bonheur de la découverte. La vérité s'éprouve et se goûte dans les déductions mathématiques - alors nous sommes les égaux de Dieu -, et Galilée voudrait qu'en chaque connaissance il y ait cette saveur qu'on garde sur la langue après une démonstration solide. -- [éditeur]
Galileo, Bellarmine, and the Bible : including a translation of Foscarini's Letter on the motion of the earth by Richard J Blackwell( Book )

3 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Considered the paradigm case of the troubled interaction between science and religion, the conflict between Galileo and the Church continues to generate new research and lively debate. Richard J. Blackwell here offers a fresh approach to the Galileo case using as his primary focus the biblical and ecclesiastical issues that were the battleground for the celebrated confrontation." "Blackwell's research in the Vatican manuscript collection and the Jesuit archives in Rome enables him to re-create a vivid picture of the trends and counter-trends that influenced leading Catholic thinkers of the period: the conservative reaction to the Reformation, the role of authority in biblical exegesis and in guarding orthodoxy from the inroads of "unbridled spirits," and the position taken by Cardinal Bellarmine and the Jesuits in attempting to weigh the discoveries of the new science in the context of traditional philosophy and theology." "A centerpiece of Blackwell's investigation is his careful reading of the brief treatise Letter on the Motion of the Earth by Paolo Antonio Foscarini, a Carmelite scholar, arguing for the compatibility of the Copernican system with the Bible. Blackwell appends the first modern translation into English of this important and neglected document, which was placed on the Index of Forbidden Books in 1616." "Though there were differing and competing theories of biblical interpretation advocated in Galileo's time, the legacy of the Council of Trent, the views of Cardinal Bellarmine, the most influential churchman of his time, and, finally, the claims of authority and obedience that weakened the ability of Jesuit scientists to support the new science, all contributed to the eventual condemnation of Galileo in 1633. Blackwell argues convincingly that the maintenance of ecclesiastical authority, not the scientific issues themselves, led to that tragic trial."--BOOK JACKET
