HIST 234 - The Trial of Galileo


2 credit(s)
The Trial of Galileo shows the confrontation between Copernicanism, as brilliantly propounded by Galileo, and the elegant cosmology of Aristotle, as defended energetically by conservatives within the Inquisition. The issues range from the nature of faith and the meaning of the Bible to the scientific principles and methods as advanced by Copernicus, Kepler, Tycho Brahe, Giordano Bruno, and Galileo. The course is organized as a role-playing game with each student adhering to individual game objectives with written and oral assignments specific to each role.
Core Requirement(s): Counts toward core requirement: Analyzing and Interpreting Texts.
