Presentation: Dick drew several lessons from Galileo’s clash with the papacy, including the need for openness, humility, respecting the notion of the “priesthood of all believers,” encouraging diversity within unity, and preserving old truth while welcoming “new light.” The Church should foster original research, anticipate challenges from science, trust in God and provide support systems for inquiring scholars.
