Welcome back all history fans to the Giants of History Podcast!

In our second episode of the two part series on Galileo, we explore one of the most famous trials in all of history, the Trial of Galileo. It is during this trial that Galileo would formally face charges of heresy, and be forced to defend his theory that the sun was in fact the center of the known universe. This would be one of the first major collisions between science and religion and set the tone for what is still today a relationship full of friction and controversy. We hope you enjoy!
