"...And whereas it has also come to the knowledge of the said Congregation
that the Pythagorean doctrine -- which is false and altogether opposed to
the Holy Scripture -- of the motion of the Earth and the immobility of the
Sun, which is also taught by Nicolaus Copernicus in De Revolutionibus
orbium coelestium, and by Diego de Zuiga on Job, is now being spread
abroad and accepted by many... Therefore, in order that this opinion may
not insinuate itself any further to the prejudice of Catholic truth, the
Holy Congregation has decreed that the said Nicolaus Copernicus, De
Revolutionibus orbium, and Diego de Zuiga, On Job, be suspended until they
are corrected.
[Decree of the Roman Catholic Congregation of the Index
condemning "De Revolutionibus", March 5, 1616]
