This work describes the career of Elie Diodati (1576-1661), ‘avocat au parlement’ who corresponded with the greatest intellectual personalities of his time. Believing in a science that should finally free itself of its Aristotelian yoke, he saw in Galileo a standard bearer for a new «ars philosophandi». Following the scientist’s condemnation in 1633, Diodati mobilized the world of learning in order to insure the Europe-wide circulation of the works censored by the Church.
