Retrying Galileo, 1633-1992

Although the 1633 condemnation ended the original Galileo affair, it also started a new controversy that has continued to this day—about the facts, causes, issues, and implications of the original trial. Galileo's trial shows the clash between conservation and innovation and constitutes one battle that the conservatives happened to win. A unifying theme is the idea of a series of retrials of Galileo—after his original trial (in 1613–1633).
