    Study this passage and answer the questions. (6 points) "We say, pronounce, sentence and declare that you, Galileo . . . have rendered yourself according to this Holy Office vehemently suspect of heresy, namely of having held and believed a doctrine that is false and contrary to the divine and Holy Scripture: namely that Sun is the center of the world and does not move from east to west. . . . Consequently, you have incurred all the censures and penalties enjoined . . . against such delinquents. We are willing to absolve you from them provided that first, with a sincere heart and unfeigned faith, in our presence you abjure, curse and detest the said errors and heresies, and every other error and heresy contrary to the Catholic and Apostolic Church in the manner and form we will prescribe to you. Furthermore . . . we order that the book Dialogue of Galileo Galilei be prohibited by public edict. We condemn you to formal imprisonment in this Holy Office at our pleasure. . . ." —Trial of Galileo Galilei, 1632 According to this text, what was Galileo accused of doing wrong, and what was his punishment?

    He was accused of having held and believing a Doctrine that was false and contrary to the Divine and Holy Scripture, (He believed that the sun was the center of the world and did not move from East to West) He was lightly punished so to speak, they mainly prohibited his book from the public and they imprisoned him in the Holy Office
