Event description

Description

In 1616, the Roman Catholic Church investigated Galileo. In a trial, the Catholic Church ordered Galileo to stop discussing ideas that conflicted with the teachings of the Church. Ideas that conflict with religious teachings are named heresy. Heresy was against the law and punishable by imprisonment or death. Religious leaders believed that heresy was evil. Galileo was ordered either to stop supporting a heretical theory or to be put in jail. What was Galileo saying that was so dangerous? What led to this trial? Find out Friday at this week's OGS meeting!
