With Dr. Jeremy Brown discussing his book, "New Heavens and a New Earth: The Jewish Reception of Copernican Thought."
We discussed Nicolaus Copernicus (1473 - 1543) and his heliocentric model and the acceptance and rejection of this throughout the generations in Jewisg thought. We discussed Rav Dovid Gans, Yashar Mi'Kandia (Rav Yosef Shlomo Delmedigo), Ma'asei Tuviah, and much more.
