Mike Price has a nice piece over at Smithsonian.com on how the rediscovery of Galilaeus Galilaeus His Life: In Five Books, by Thomas Salusbury, a biography of Galileo written just twenty years after his death is causing some to reinterpret the cause of Galileo’s trial. In short, Salusbury proposed that Galileo was raked over the coals because Urban VIII wanted to punish the Duke of Medici.
