“Redondi overturns the historical framework that up to now has served as a backdrop for all our ideas about the transition to the modern era: we have always believed that the decisive question was the movement of the earth around the sun, and understandably so because this marked the demise of a concept whereby man was at the centre of creation. Wrong: it turns out, instead, that the cosmological issue of the seventeenth century was a secondary matter, while the question that today appears to exist only on a spiritual-symbolic plane was instead of primary scientific importance.” Italo Calvino Galileo and his atomism versus the dogma of the Eucharist. The most debated work in Galilean studies in the last twenty-five years, translated into all the major languages, written with the pace of a thriller.
