In 1616, on the orders of Paul V, Bellarmine summoned Galileo. Notified him of a forthcoming decree. Of the Congregation of the Index. Doctrine of the mobility of the Earth and the immobility of the Sun, and ordered him to abandon it.Galileo agreed to do so. When Galileo later complained of rumors to the effect that he had been forced to abjure and do penance, Bellarmine wrote out a certificate denying the rumors, stating that Galileo had merely been notified of the decree and informed that, as a consequence of it, the Copernican doctrine could not be "defended or held".

For four years, after which he retired to the Jesuit college of St. Andrew in Rome, where he died on 17 September 1621, aged 78. Bellarmine's books bear the stamp of their period; the effort for literary elegance (so-called "maraviglia") had given place to a desire to pile up as much material as possible, to embrace the whole field of human knowledge, and incorporate it into theology. His controversial works provoked many replies, and were studied for some decades after his death.
At Leuven he made extensive studies in the Church Fathers. Which gave him the material for his book De scriptoribus ecclesiasticis (Rome, 1613). It was later revised and enlarged by Sirmond. Bellarmine wrote the preface to the new Sixto-Clementine Vulgate. From his research grew his Disputationes de controversiis christianae fidei also called Disputationes.

Denying the pope's authority in secular matters. Bellarmine wrote three rejoinders to the Venetian theologians, and may have warned Sarpi of an impending murderous attack. Bellarmine also became involved in controversy with King James I of England. From a point of principle for English Catholics, this debate drew in figures from much of Western Europe. It raised the profile of both protagonists, King James as a champion of his own restricted Calvinist Protestantism, and Bellarmine for Tridentine Catholicism.During his retirement, he wrote several short books intended to help ordinary people in their spiritual life: De ascensione mentis in Deum per scalas rerum creatorum opusculum (The Mind's Ascent to God) (1614) which was translated into English as Jacob's Ladder (1638) without acknowledgement by Henry Isaacson.
