Augustine, Galileo and natural science

Read the timeline of the Church's dealing with Galileo after his death.

1758 - The Index no longer forbids heliocentrism.
1835 - The Index no longer lists Dialogue.
1893 - Leo XIII advances a view of the Bible and science entirely consistent with Galileo.
1942 - Many at the Pontifical Academy of Sciences praise Galileo on the three hundredth anniversary of his death.

You have not studied science, but we'll forget that now.

Matthew 18:18 Wrote:Amen I say to you, whatsoever you shall bind upon earth, shall be bound also in heaven; and whatsoever you shall loose upon earth, shall be loosed also in heaven.

Galileo's work after his imprisonment is what is praised.
