I grew up Protestant. I mean PROTESTANT. I don't think there was a Catholic in my family for 500 years. So, now I'm very curious about anything to do with medieval or renaissance history, which naturally includes Catholic history. This book taught me a lot about those subjects and helped me realized that I'm enthralled with physics, too. I'm also very impressed with Galileo -- of course.
