Professor George Wright, the Lawrence A. Jegen III Professor of Law at IU School of Law - Indianapolis, will introduce this one-man play and offer his views on the relation between science and religion.
The play celebrates the 400th anniversary of Galileo's discoveries and explores the tensions between science and religion and one man's struggle for intellectual and spiritual salvation. The centuries old tensions are as current now as ever, keeping this dramatic representation of how it manifested relavant today.
