Biagioli occasionally exaggerates the rarity of Bible reading in sixteenth-century Italy. For example, because there were no authorized vernacular translations of scripture the author assumes that few Italians read the Bible in their native language.
We know from the work of Gigliola Fragnito La Bibbia al rogo: la censura ecclessiastica e i volgarizzamenti della Scrittura  , whom Biagioli cites, as well as from other recent scholarship, that the vernacular Bible translations of Sancte Pagnini and Antonio Brucioli, for example, were frequently read in late sixteenth- and early seventeenth-century Italy. These statements about the relationship between religion and science in early modern Europe are models for students and scholars who teach and write about these matters.
This book has one main drawback. It consists of four chapters, three of which previously appeared as articles. As such, transitions from one chapter to the next sometimes feel forced, and this volume lacks some of the coherence that characterized Galileo, Courtier.
