Galileo Galilei 's parents were Vincenzo Galilei and Guilia Ammannati. Vincenzo, who was born in Florence in 1520, was a teacher of music and a fine lute player. After studying music in Venice he carried out experiments on strings to support his musical theories. Guilia, who was born in Pescia, married Vincenzo in 1563 and they made their home in the countryside near Pisa. Galileo was their first child and spent his early years with his family in Pisa. In 1572, when Galileo was eight years old, his family returned to Florence, his father's home town. However, Galileo remained in Pisa and lived for two years with Muzio Tedaldi who was related to Galileo's mother by marriage. When he reached the age of ten, Galileo left Pisa to join his family in Florence and there he was tutored by Jacopo Borghini. Once he was old enough to be educated in a monastery, his parents sent him to the Camaldolese Monastery at Vallombrosa which is situated on a magnificent forested hillside 33 km southeast of Florence. The Camaldolese Order was independent of the Benedictine Order, splitting from it in about 1012. The Order combined the solitary life of the hermit with the strict life of the monk and soon the young Galileo found this life an attractive one. He became a novice, intending to join the Order, but this did not please his father who had already decided that his eldest son should become a medical doctor.

Galileo Galilei
Astronomer and Physicist I do not feel obliged to believe that the same
god who has endowed us with sense, reason and
intellect has intended us to forgo their use.
Galileo Galilei
was born on February 15, 1564 in Pisa, Italy. Galileo pioneered "experimental scientific method" and was the first to use a refracting telescope to make important astronomical discoveries. In 1609 Galileo learned of the invention of the telescope in Holland. From the barest description he constructed a vastly superior model. Galileo made a series of profound discoveries using his new telescope, including the moons of the planet Jupiter and the phases of the planet Venus (similar to those of Earth's moon). As a professor of astronomy at University of Pisa, Galileo was required to teach the accepted theory of his time that the sun and all the planets revolved around the Earth. Later at University of Padua he was exposed to a new theory, proposed by Nicolaus Copernicus , that the Earth and all the other planets revolved around the sun. Galileo's observations with his new telescope convinced him of the truth of Copernicus's

Galileo Galilei
Generally called GALILEO. Born at Pisa , 15 February, 1564; died 8 January, 1642. His father, Vincenzo Galilei, belonged to a noble family of straitened fortune, and had gained some distinction as a musician and mathematician. The boy at an early age manifested his aptitude for mathematical and mechanical pursuits, but his parents, wishing to turn him aside from studies which promised no substantial return, destined him for the medical profession . But all was in vain, and at an early age the youth had to be left to follow the bent of his native genius, which speedily placed him in the very first rank of natural philosophers. It is the great merit of Galileo that, happily combining experiment with calculation, he opposed the prevailing system according to which, instead of going directly to nature for investigation of her laws and processes, it was held that these were best learned by authority, especially by that of Aristotle , who was supposed to have spoken the last word upon all such matters, and upon whom many erroneous conclusions had been fathered in the course of time. Against such a superstition Galileo resolutely and vehemently set himself, with the result that he not only soon discredited many beliefs which had hitherto been accepted as indisputable, but aroused a storm of opposition and indignation amongst those whose opinions he discredited; the more so, as he was a fierce controversialist, who, not content with refuting adversaries, was bent upon confounding them. Moreover, he wielded an exceedingly able pen, and unsparingly ridiculed and exasperated his opponents. Undoubtedly he thus did much to bring upon himself the troubles for which he is now chiefly remembered. As Sir David Brewster (

any scholars trace the birth of modern science back to Galileo Galilei (1564-1642), who used instruments to observe nature and experiments to understand it. Like Copernicus, he began training for a career in medicine, but later switched to a subject more to his liking, mathematics. Galileo long accepted Copernicusí idea that Earth and the other planets orbited the sun, but he was the first able to prove it based on his observations with a telescope. Many people think Galileo invented the telescope, but thatís not true. Spectacle makers in Europe had probably discovered how to make distant objects appear closer well before Galileo. The first telescope to arouse interest, however, was made in 1608 by the Dutch optician Hans Lippershey. When Galileo heard of it, he quickly made his own and turned it on the heavens. Within a few months he had discovered four moons orbiting Jupiteródestroying the Greek idea that Earth was the center of all motionóand the phases of Venusó overturning Ptolemyís concept that the Sun and planets all orbited Earth. He wrote of his sensational discoveries in Italian rather than academic Latin so the general public could read about them. His observations improved our knowledge of the universe we live in and helped turn science into an experimental endeavor. For his efforts, and their devastating effect on the religious dogma of the time, he was forced to recant his findings before the Inquisition and spent the last decade of his life under house arrest.

12. Galileo Galilei
Short profile of the Italian physicist and astronomer.
Galileo Galilei
Wow! Galileo discovered four of Jupiter's moons almost four hundred years ago. Galileo Galilei was an Italian physicist and astronomer . He was born in Pisa on February 15, 1564. Galileo's father, Vincenzo Galilei, was a well-known musician. Vincenzo decided that his son should become a doctor. In 1581, Galileo was sent to the University of Pisa to study medicine. While a student at the university, Galileo discovered that he had a talent for mathematics. He was able to persuade his father to allow him to leave the university to become a tutor in mathematics. He later became a professor of mathematics. In 1609, Galileo heard about the invention of the spyglass, a device which made distant objects appear closer. Galileo used his mathematics knowledge and technical skills to improve upon the spyglass and build a telescope . Later that same year, he became the first person to look at the Moon through a telescope and make his first astronomy discovery. He found that the Moon was not smooth, but mountainous and pitted - just like the Earth! He subsequently used his newly invented telescope to discover four of the moons circling Jupiter, to study Saturn, to observe the phases of Venus, and to study sunspots on the Sun.

Although in the popular mind Galileo is remembered chiefly as an astronomer, it was not in this character that he made really substantial

I rapporti dello scienziato con la Chiesa ed il suo atto d'abiura.
"Si narra che il martedì grasso del 1632, nelle piazze d'Italia girava questa stornellata popolare: " il saggio Galileo / diede un'occhiata al cielo / e disse: "Nella Genesi non c'è nulla di vero!" / bel coraggio! Non è cosa da poco: / oggi queste eresie / si diffondono come malattie. / Che resta se si cambia la Scrittura? / Ognuno dice e fa quel che gli comoda / senza aver più paura. / Se certe idee fan presa, gente mia, / cosa può capitare? Non ci saran più chierici alla messa, / le serve il letto non vorranno più fare / ..Brutta storia! Non è cosa da poco / il libero pensiero è attaccaticcio / come un epidemia. /Dolce è la vita, l'uomo irragionevole, / e tanto per cambiare far quel che ci talenta è assai piacevole! Pover uomo che dall'età remota / obbedisce al Vangelo e a chi governa / e porgi l'altra gota / per conquistar la ricompensa eterna, / per obbedire più, diventa saggio: / è tempo ormai di vivere ciascuno a suo vantaggio / Mentre il cantastorie si ferma, ecco apparire un fantoccio di grandezza superiore all'umana, Galilei che si inchina verso il pubblico. Davanti a lui un bimbo porta una gigantesca Bibbia aperta, dalle pagine cancellate, e il cantastorie riprende: "ecco Galileo Galilei l'ammazza-Bibbia! "

The Crime of Galileo:
Indictment and Abjuration of 1633
  • The proposition that the sun is in the center of the world and immovable from its place is absurd, philosophically false, and formally heretical; because it is expressly contrary to Holy Scriptures. The proposition that the earth is not the center of the world, nor immovable, but that it moves, and also with a diurnal action, is also absurd, philosophically false, and, theologically considered, at least erroneous in faith.
  • 1630 A.D. [See note below. The date should be 1633] Important Note: I have been unable to locate a printed source for the above text. A different translation, with the text of Galileo's abjuration,was posted by Evan Soule, 10/18/1998 at . Again this is without a printed source, but with the correct date of 1633. See the Galileo Timeline at Rice University The following are excerpted portions from the Sentence of the Tribunal of the Supreme Inquisition against Galileo Galilei, given the 22nd day of June of the year 1633

    Galileo Galilei (Retrato de Domenico Crespi) Tras dar algunas clases particulares de matemáticas en Florencia y en Siena, trató de obtener un empleo regular en las universidades de Bolonia, Padua y en la propia Florencia. En 1589 consiguió por fin una plaza en el Estudio de Pisa, donde su descontento por el paupérrimo sueldo percibido no pudo menos que ponerse de manifiesto en un poema satírico contra la vestimenta académica. En Pisa compuso Galileo un texto sobre el movimiento, que mantuvo inédito, en el cual, dentro aún del marco de la mecánica medieval, criticó las explicaciones aristotélicas de la caída de los cuerpos y del movimiento de los proyectiles; en continuidad con esa crítica, una cierta tradición historiográfica ha forjado la anécdota (hoy generalmente considerada como inverosímil) de Galileo refutando materialmente a Aristóteles mediante el procedimiento de lanzar distintos pesos desde lo alto del Campanile, ante las miradas contrariadas de los peripatéticos... En 1591 la muerte de su padre significó para Galileo la obligación de responsabilizarse de su familia y atender a la dote de su hermana Virginia. Comenzaron así una serie de dificultades económicas que no harían más que agravarse en los años siguientes; en 1601 hubo de proveer a la dote de su hermana Livia sin la colaboración de su hermano Michelangelo, quien había marchado a Polonia con dinero que Galileo le había prestado y que nunca le devolvió (por el contrario, se estableció más tarde en Alemania, gracias de nuevo a la ayuda de su hermano, y envió luego a vivir con él a toda su familia).
