Some also deny that the earth is in the middest of the world, and
some affirme that it is mouable, as also Copernicus by way of supposition,
and not for that he thought so in deede: who affirmeth that the earth
turneth about, and that the sunne standeth still in the midst of the
heauens, by help of which false supposition he hath made truer demonstrations
of the motions and reuolutions of the celestiall Spheares, than euer
were made before...
