Galileo's Daughter: A Historical Memoir of Science, Faith and Love
Galileo’s daughter Virginia – who took the name Maria Celeste – spent her teen and adult years at the Convent of San Matteo. She was close to her father, and corresponded with him about his scientific and religious beliefs – as well smaller matters, such as sugared quinces. Sobel has translated Maria Celeste’s letters into English and includes them in this volume. In additon, Sobel casts a clear light on Galileo’s discoveries and theories, placing them in historical context.
