Augustine, Galileo and natural science
#42
St. Robert vigorously supported the heliocentric view, but he also was not an absolutist about it--the inerrancy of Scripture was not absolutely at stake in his opinion. He accounted for the possibility that the earth moved around the sun and gave advice on how to proceed if that were proven to be the case. However, he didn't think it had been proven and saw both scientific evidence and testimony of Scripture as demonstrating the opposite. His whole letter on the subject is here:
