Galileo Galilei - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (5471 words)
Galileo was born in Pisa, Italy, the son of Vincenzo Galilei, a mathematician and musician.
Galileo was defended on the spot by a Benedictine abbot, Benedetto Castelli, who was also a professor of mathematics and a former student of Galileo's.
Galileo was never convicted of heresy; even in the second trial, he was only 'vehemently suspected of heresy.' Instead, he was punished at the second trial for having disobeyed what was believed to be a valid injunction not to discuss Copernicanism.
