“‘Proof’ denies faith, and without faith we are nothing. The universe is a divine miracle, Galileo, not a clockwork toy.” Pope Urban (1624)
Galileo’s tragedy was a mistaken belief that, if he supplied the church with proof that the planets revolve around the sun, he would enlighten the world while escaping persecution. He was wrong.
Galileo never understood that his differences with the Church were not about reason, logic, and scientific fact. They were about politics. When he finally came to realise this, on trial for heresy, it was too late.
A regular with the RSC, Hardy has previously toured The Trials of Galileo throughout the UK, America, Europe and had a sold out critically acclaimed run at the Edinburgh Fringe.
