Prompt: What did the Catholic Church hope to gain when they
censored materials concerning the heliocentric heavens in
the 16th century? Why did Galileo publish the Two Chief
World Systems against the dictate of the church?
You must argue in favor of the Church’s censorship in the
interest of maintaining authority and social stability. I
recognize this may be in opposition to your beliefs, but
that is the point. The Church had a reason that was
grounded in the social norms of the time. Argue
persuasively their position.
