Caption: Galilei Galileo (1564-1642), Italian physicist and astronomer, being guided by his daughter Maria Celeste (1600-1634), a nun. In 1633, Galileo was tried for heresy by the Roman Catholic Church for his support of the heliocentric Copernican theory. He was kept under house arrest for the rest of his life and later went blind. Artwork from Les Martyrs de la Science (G. Tissandier, 1882).
