Starting with an overview of the Copernican Letters (1613-15), we will explore the boundaries between science and religion in Galileo’s works. We will then use passages from The Assayer(1623) to delve into the concept of “Book of Nature” and ponder the role of mathematics as the language of science.

Lecture by DANIELE MACUGLIA, physicist and historian, University of
