Pope Urban VIII (Cardinal Barberini) condemned Galileo, ABSOLUTELY CONDEMNED Heliocentrism
http://www.ldolphin.org/geocentricity/Daly.pdf
7th December 1615: Galileo arrives at Rome himself with his newly-perfected telescope and attracts great interest on the part of all learned men of the city. He is received with respect and friendship by many cardinals including St. Robert Bellarmine, and by the Pope. Many friends advise him to keep his treatment of heliocentrism hypothetical and to claim only that heliocentrism is the best means of saving the appearances: one of those who advised him thus is Cardinal Barberini who became a particular friend of his but was later, as Pope Urban VIII, to condemn him in 1633.
