  • Galileo?
  • Word of Galileo’s brotherhood started to spread in the 1630s, and scientists from around the world made secret pilgrimages to Rome hoping to join the Illuminati …. eager for a chance to look through Galileo’s telescope and hear the master’s ideas.

  • Langdon explained that Discorsi had not been Galileo’s only work while under house arrest.
  • Diagramma was Galileo’s most secretive work-supposedly some sort of treatise on scientific facts he held to be true but was not allowed to share.

  • Galileo’s Illuminati, however, saw perfection in the ellipse as well, revering the mathematical duality of its twin foci.
  • So you’re saying maybe Galileo considered English la lingua pura because it was the one language the Vatican did not control?
  • Or maybe by putting the clue in English, Galileo was subtly restricting the readership away from the Vatican.

  • Galileo’s path of Illumination was a tribute to both science and God!
  • He didn’t want the added encumbrance of a tweed jacket, nor did he have any intention of taking Galileo’s Diagramma anywhere near the water.

  • For a moment, hearing the verse aloud, Langdon felt transported in time …. as though he were one of Galileo’s contemporaries, listening to the poem for the first time …. knowing it was a test, a map, a clue unveiling the four altars of science …. the four markers that blazed a secret path across Rome.
