          Abstract

          In 1651 the Italian Jesuit Giovanni Battista Riccioli (1598-1671) published in his encyclopedic work on astronomy, the Almagestum Novum, 77 arguments against the Copernican movement of the Earth. These arguments are often mentioned in secondary sources, but a complete listing has not been readily available - thus one is provided here, in English. The 77 include interesting arguments from physics and astronomy that went on to become subjects of further investigation after the advent of Newtonian physics.
