    The Roman Inquisition's precept to Galileo.Thomas F. Mayer - 2010 - British Journal for the History of Science 43 (3):327-351.
    On 26 February 1616 Galileo was ordered to cease to defend heliocentrism in any way whatsoever. This order, called a precept, automatically applied to anything he might later attempt to publish on the subject. Issued at the end of his first trial by the Roman Inquisition, the precept became the spark that triggered his second trial in 1632–3 and figured importantly in the justification of his sentence. This precept has been a subject of controversy since the late nineteenth century for (...)

    The censoring of Galileo’s Sunspot Letters and the first phase of his trial.Thomas F. Mayer - 2011 - Studies in History and Philosophy of Science Part A 42 (1):1-10.
    Galileo’s Sunspot Letters, published in 1613, underwent extensive censorship before publication. It seems likely that the Roman Inquisition had charge of the pre-publication review of Galileo’s work, rather than the usual organ, the Master of the Sacred Palace. A study of that process demonstrates that the issue to which the censors objected was Galileo’s use of the bible, not his allegiance to Copernicus. In the course of the first phase of Galileo’s trial, orchestrated by one of the most powerful Cardinal (...)

    Galileo and all the stars: A new biography: John L. Heilbron: Galileo. Oxford: Oxford University Press, 2010, xiv+508pp, $34.95 HB, $24.95 PB. [REVIEW]Thomas F. Mayer - 2013 - Metascience 23 (2):357-359.
    According to the Rome newspaper La Repubblica, 2009 was “a year for Galileo and all the stars.” The headline referred to the UN’s declaration, at Italian urging, of an international year of astronomy celebrating Galileo’s first use of the telescope. The Italians marked the event in epic fashion, including a mega-conference in Florence and many smaller affairs. What they did not do was produce a new biography. That was left to an Englishman, David Wootton, and an American, John Heilbron.Heilbron’s Galileo (...)
