The Vatican Observatory: 400+ Years of Science and Faith by Fr Paul Mueller
The Vatican Observatory is an astronomical research and education institution originally founded in 1582 to explain and defend the new Gregorian calendar. The Church has had a long-standing interest in astronomy, due to the astronomical basis by which holy days and Easter are determined. Father Mueller spoke on the Observatory’s historic role in scientific research, as well as its endeavour at the frontier of faith, science, and politics.
