RSC’s A Life of Galileo: pure inspiration

Ian McDiarmid in the poster for A Life of Galileo

  • Bertolt Brecht’s Galileo has probably brought the tale of Galileo and his trial to more people than any single science or history book ever written. By adapting the story into a tragedy, Brecht explores many facets of the interface between belief and evidence. These include not just religious faith versus scientific evidence but also Galileo’s internal struggle to rationalise his recantation, even though he knows his observations are true.
