Galileo was born in Pisa (then part of the Duchy of Florence) Italy the first of six children of Vincenzo Galilei a famous lutenist composer and music theorist; and Giulia Ammannati. The Jesuits were offended and Grassi soon replied with a polemical tract of his own The Astronomical and Philosophical Balance under the pseudonym Lothario Sarsio Sigensano purporting to be one of his own pupils.
