That the Earth may be a Planet.
to borrow elſewhere, whilſt the Sun and the
Stars have it of their own.
From whence
it may be probably concluded, that the Earth
is rather the Subject of this Motion than the
other.
To this it may be added, that the
Sun and Stars ſeem to be of a more excellent
Nature than the other parts of the World,
and therefore ſhould in reaſon be endowed
with the beſt qualifications.
But now Mo-
tion is not ſo noble a condition as Reſt:
that is but a kind of weariſom and ſervile
thing, whereas this is uſually aſcribed to God
himſelf:
Of whom ’tis ſaid;
Bott. de
Coxſol.
Phil. l.3.
