Abstract: In 1651 the Italian Jesuit Giovanni Battista Riccioli 1598-1671 publishedin his encyclopedic work on astronomy, the Almagestum Novum, 77 argumentsagainst the Copernican movement of the Earth. These arguments are oftenmentioned in secondary sources, but a complete listing has not been readilyavailable - thus one is provided here, in English. The 77 include interestingarguments from physics and astronomy that went on to become subjects of furtherinvestigation after the advent of Newtonian physics.
