Page 169 - Do you not know that you are the temple of God and the Spirit of God dwells in you?
Page 106 - Platonics reckon them among the specific and concrete notions of the soul. Avicen makes the cause of dreams to be an ultimate intelligence moving the moon in the middle of that light with which the fancies of men are illuminate while they sleep. Aristotle refers the cause thereof to common sense, but placed in the fancy. Averroes places the cause in the imagination.
Page 3 - Are evil as well as good, and bring us no other advantage to excel as deities, more than what the serpent promised of old, when he said, 'Ye shall be as Gods, knowing good and evil.
Page 106 - Platonic ; so far building upon examples of dreams, which some accident hath made to be true, that thence they endeavour to persuade men that there are no dreams but what are real. But as to the causes of dreams, both external and internal, they do not all agree in one judgment. For the Platonics reckon them among the specific and concrete notions of the soul. Avicen makes the cause of dreams...
Page 175 - But this commanded I them, saying, Obey my voice, and I will be your God, and ye shall be my people; and walk ye in all the ways which I have commanded you, that it may be well unto you.
Page 101 - Lines to be, as it were, certaine caelestial characters stampt upon us by God and Nature, and which, as Job saith, God imprinted or put in the Hands of men, that so every one might know his works; though it be plain that the divine author doth not there treat of vain Chiromancy, but of the liberty of the will.
Page 106 - Artemidorus and Daldianus have written of the Interpretation of Dreams : and certain Books go about under Abraham's name, whom Philo, in his Book of the Gyants and of Civil Life, asserts to have been the first practiser thereof. Other Treatises there are falsified under the names of David and Solomon, wherein are to be read nothing but meer Dreams concerning Dreams. But Marcus Cicero, in his Book of Divination...
Page 308 - ... At length so many subjects of taste, so many provocatives of luxury, so many varieties of dainties were invented by these Apicians, that it was thought requisite to restrain the luxury of the kitchen. Hence all those ancient sumptuary laws. Lucius Flaccus, and his colleague censors, put...
Page 171 - Let no man judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of a holy-day, or of the new moon, or of the Sabbath: Which are a shadow of good things to come, but the body is of .Christ.
Page 123 - ... words of the law, which were not to be communicated to the profane vulgar: so for this art, which the Jews so much boast of, which I have with great labour and diligence searched into, I must acknowledge it to be a mere rhapsody of superstition, and nothing but a kind of theurgic magic before spoken of.
