Shea, William R. & Mariano Artigas  
Galileo in Rome: The Rise and Fall of a Troublesome Genius

xi, 226 p., [32] p. of plates, illus., index; 24 cm. Organized around six trips to Rome by Galileo Galilei, 1564-1642. Presents the Church in a softer light than usual. They didn't kill him after all-- although some would say this reflected Galileo's position in the Medici court more than any pontifical benevolence. Very Good in VG dust jacket. Stock#44038.
