Galileo was Italian

Because Galileo was Italian, the Galileo Affair had nothing to do with the Spanish Inquisition, which, not surprisingly, took place in Spain. Furthermore, Galileo's trouble with the Church was not a result of his science but rather a result of him making theological pronunciations based on his scientific observations and theories.
