Most of the ancient culture was destroyed by purpose in the Middle Ages by the Church, at which time the monks, most of whom where illiterate, would just copy ecclesiastical material. A few of the most learned church high brass kbnew that Galileo was right, but they were afraid the populace would lose their unrelenting faith in the Church was it to admit it was wrong and Galieo was right. They never gave a d**n about scientific learning of the masses, they've always only protected their own wealth and power. And the best way to do so it keeping the people in subjugation, ignorance and superstition.
