Hey Ben, can you list some sources about that Galileo thing? The myth is pretty prominent, sadly, and it would be nice to have sources to point to when meeting it.

Ben,

Thanks for these. I look forward to listening to them.

Arni: for some general historical information about the "warfare" model (and the use of Galileo), you could start with Ian Barbour's useful introductory work, Religion and Science: Historical and Contemporary Issues (New York: Harper, 1997). And for detailed historical insight into the relationship between science and religion in the 17th century, the best work is by Peter Harrison -- e.g. The Bible, Protestantism, and the Rise of Natural Science (Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 1998).
