Description:

On the verge of death and blind from years of staring heavenward, Galileo pieces together the visions, dreams, and questions that have brought him to this place. And so begins a journey in reverse through the remarkable events of Galileo’s extraordinary life: his imprisonment for heresy, his defense of science through the Inquisition, and back to his earliest days of inspiration, invention, and discovery. Through the lens of one man’s incredible life, Galileo Galilei explores questions of religion and science, faith and truth.
