Book Overview

Galileo's daughter was her father's greatest source of strength during his most difficult time. Galileo was at the heart of the most dramatic collision between science & religion in history. He was also a loving father who treasured his illegitimate daughter, Virginia, perhaps her father's equal in brilliance & sensibility. Since marriage was impossible, she entered a convent to spend the rest of her days there as Sister Maria Celeste. Her 124 letters span the decade in which a new Pope battled the Reformation; the 30 Years' War embroiled Europe; the bubonic plague erupted; & a new philosophy of science threatened to overturn the order of the universe. Her evocative letters touch on all of these situations, but they dwell in the details of everyday life. (
