That the Moon may be a World.
I have already proved, and as for the laſt it is
confidently affirm’d by Gælius, Quod ſi in diſ-
Ant. Lect.
l. 20. c. 5.
quiſitionem evocet quis, an lunari ſyderi lucem
fœnerent planetæ item alii, aſſeveranter aſtruen-
dum non fænerare.
‘If any ſhould ask whether
‘the other Planets lend any Light to the
‘Moon?
I anſwer, they do not. True indeed,
the Noble Tycho diſcuſſing the reaſon of this
Progym. 1.Light, attributes it to the Planet Venus;
and I
grant that this may convey ſome Light to the
Moon;
but that is not the cauſe of this where-
of we now diſcourſe, is of it ſelf ſufficiently
plain, becauſe Venus is ſometimes over the
Moon, when as ſhe cannot convey any Light
to that part which is turned from her.
