Product description


"Repcheck paints a vivid picture of the times, in which both Protestantism and intellectual inquiry posed threats to the Catholic worldview. The author also does an admirable job of shining a light on Copernicus's little-known immediate predecessors to show that, like the works of Einstein and Darwin, the scientist's theory didn't spring Athena-like from his brow"-- "Publishers Weekly"


Traces the story of the enigmatic scientist while revealing how he was able to make his pivotal discovery about how the Earth revolves around the sun in spite of limited technology and the obscure belief systems of his contemporaries.
