The Ghost of Galileo

In a forgotten painting from the English Civil War

J.L. Heilbron

  • A rich and wide-ranging exploration of science and culture in Stuart England, and its close connections with continental Europe, from a leading historian
  • Uses the curious, symbolic appearance of Galileo's Dialogue in a forgotten painting from the English Civil War as a starting point and focus
  • Sets the story of the painter and the sitters against their rich cultural backdrop
  • Integrates material from the history of art, science, religion, politics, and culture into a characteristically lively and witty narrative
