Did Galileo take a vow of obedience as part of a religious order? I heard he might have been a Jesuit or Benedictine, but not sure. Please send me a good link with that info.
I heard Galileo was tried for disobedience and wouldn't have been put under house arrest if he was a a lay person. I know Catholic lay people should still be obedient to the Church, but we wouldn't be put under house arrest if we did what Galileo did, right?
God Bless You,
