Scientists have found the letter which Galilei has deceived inquisition


The letter with self-censorship has been written instead of the original which Galilei announced slander of ill-wishers. The Italian historians have found the letter of Galileo Galilei by means of which he tried to deceive church in archives of the London royal society and to take away from themselves suspicions inquisition. Information has been published in the report in the Nature magazine. In 1613 Galilei has written the well-known letter to the pupil abbot Kastelli protecting heliocentric model of Solar system. Galilei wrote that the Scripture belongs only to rescue of soul and in scientific questions isn't authoritative: "any saying of the Writing has no such compulsory force what has any natural phenomenon", - he claimed. The letter has been published in open sources that has caused a wave of denunciations in inquisition. To correct the reputation, Galilei has resorted to cunning. He declared that this letter was written by his opponents with the purpose to blacken a name of the scientist. In parallel he has prepared the new version of the letter which was found by researchers. If initially he wrote that he provisions in the Bible "false if to go on literal word meaning", then in the new version called them "other than the truth". Many other statements have also been replaced with softer synonyms. He through the Roman priest has transferred the letter to Vatican. However, self-censorship after all hasn't saved Galilei - in 1633 in Rome inquisitorial process following the results of which the scientist has been sentenced to life imprisonment in prison which has soon been replaced with house arrest and lifelong supervision of inquisition has taken place.
