De Morgan, Augustus, trans. On another level, Jesuit astronomers pursued reform cautiously, espousing Copernicanism covertly, and challenging principles of Aristotelian cosmology where it was licit to do so.

All motion, in contemporary physics, is relative motion. Observations and requirements to “save the heetico were irrelevant; the rest of the world was supposed to take his word for it. Gebler took part in it himself, and, then suffering from illness, wrote his reply from a sick bed.

For too long, the polemical career of Galileo Galilei has been simplistically regarded as the focal point of a violent collision between scientific liberty and ecclesiastical oppression. To the horror of the followers of Aristotle, who were quite taken aback at such unheard-of audacity, he resolutely attacked in public disputations many oracular dicta of their great master hitherto unquestioned, and this even then made him many enemies, and acquired for him the epithet of “the Wrangler.
