    The Galileo case was a very unusual case for the Inqusition, and its actions did not go uncontested within the ranks of the Church. I believe one of the Inquisitors on Galileo even refused to sign the condemnation out of protest of the judgement. All in all, it had very little(if any) real effect upon the Church's attitudes towards either scriptures or astronomical research for that matter.

    As my link pointed out, whatever literal position the institution took was largely because of the tense situation following the Protestant Reformation concerning interpretation of scriptures, where the Reformers condemned the Church for not being true to scriptures enough.

    I appreciate the link you shared, I read most of it yesterday. Yes, it made a really good case for the context having contributed to the Church's response in this situation.

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft
