Lifted from John Salza's page on the Church Against Heliocentrism!

This is a duplicate synopsis of an article further down on this category reminding us that the Church has always squarely come down on the geocentric side.

Things to consider when reading the Fathers regarding the earth and sun:

1) The Fathers never say the earth moves, except at the end of time.
2) The Fathers always say the earth is at rest at the center of the universe.
3) The Fathers never say the sun is the center of the universe.
4) The Fathers never say the sun does not move around the earth, even in their scientific analysis of the cosmos.
5) The Fathers always say the earth is the center of the universe.
6) The Fathers always say the sun moves as the moon moves.
7) The Fathers recognize that some of the Greeks held that the earth moves and rotates, but they do not accept that teaching.
Cool The Fathers hold that the earth was created first, by itself, and only afterward the sun, moon and stars.
9) The Fathers hold that light was created after the earth, but that this light preceded the light of the sun and stars.
10) The Fathers never held the myth of antipodes, (opposite side walkers) people walking around opposite others on the other side of a ball.
