"I, Galileo Galilei, son of the late Vincenzo Galilei, of Florence, ...with the help of God will in future believe, every article which the Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church of Rome holds, teaches, and preaches. But because I have been enjoined by this Holy Office altogether to abandon the false opinion which maintains that the sun is the centre and immovable, and forbidden to hold, defend, or teach the said false doctrine in any manner..." - Pioneers of Science, Lodge
