Does Freud's atheism come into play in any way? Turtle Fan 04:38, 19 May 2009 (UTC)

No. He is a very devout Cardinal, not an atheist, nor is there any suggestion that he might have converted from Judaism. TR 04:49, 19 May 2009 (UTC)
And there's no hint at any irony? Turtle Fan 03:20, 20 May 2009 (UTC)
Uncharacteristically, no irony. TR 04:04, 20 May 2009 (UTC)

Naming[]

Gioioso is Italian not Latin.JonathanMarkoff (talk) 20:06, September 24, 2016 (UTC)

What does the story say? You apparently have access to it and I thought he said it was an exercise in Latin. If not then not but if it is then its a possible inconsistency. ML4E (talk) 20:11, September 24, 2016 (UTC)
Jonathan is correct. Gioisoso tells Galileo he's translated into Galileo's "tongue". TR (talk) 20:23, September 24, 2016 (UTC)
Okay, my bad. I obviously misremembered. ML4E (talk) 20:24, September 24, 2016 (UTC)

Date of Birth[]

Matthew set it to "c. 1564". I don't recall it being that accurate. How did you get that date? ML4E (talk) 19:07, August 30, 2019 (UTC)

The story suggests that Galileo and Gioioso appear to be the same age.Matthew Babe Stevenson (talk) 03:18, August 31, 2019 (UTC)
