JUDICIALL ASTROLOGIE Judicially Condemned.
A word by way of Preface.
THE SURVEY & EXAMINATION of Will. Ramsey's EPISTLES, and the foul Language of his Book.
Ramsey's chapter 1
The Survey of Will. Ramsey's 1. Section of his 1. Chapter.
W. R. his SECT. II. In answer to some cavils of M. Homes his, wherein he denyeth Astrology to be warranted by Scri∣pture, proved to be erroneous and false.
A Repetition of Doctour Homes his SECTION I. Of the nature of Astrology in some distinctions, descriptions, and observations.
W.R. his SECT. III. Proving Astrologie to be an Art.
W. R. his SECT. IV. Proving the lawfulness of Astrologie, being not impugned by the Scripture, nor Councils; but allowed of by the wisest and greatest men.
W.R. his SECT. V. Demonstrating the antiquity of Astrology.
W.R. his SECT. VI. That Astrology is the most profitable Study reveated under the Sun to mortals.
W.R. his CHAP. II.
W.R. his SECT. I. Wherein is further shewn the legality of Astrology,
W. R. his SECT. II. Wherein is shewn that the Stars are Signes and Causes.
W. R. his SECT. III. Wherein his allegations against the ground of the Art are condemned; and his bringing S. Augustine and Galen against it, proved fallacious.
VV. R. his SECT. IV. Wherein Astrology is defended against his al∣legations, from Master Perkins his words.
W. R. his SECT. V. Wherein his cavilling M. Briggs, and others, are convinced.
D. H. his SECT. II. Of the Opinions of the Learned touching Astrology.
W. R. his CHAP. III. Wherein the Doctours divine proofs against Astrology, are examined and confuted.
W. R. his SECT. I. Wherein the Drs first Scripture proof, viz. Deut. 18.10. is convinced and cleared, no wise to condemn ASTROLOGIE.
W. R. his SECT. II. Wherein the Drs second proof is refelled, viz. Esay. 2.6.
W. R. his SECTION III. Wherein his third Text is convinced, viz. Esay 44.25.
W. R. his SECT. IV. Wherein he saith the Doctour fourth proof is refelled, viz. Esay 47.12, 13, 14.
W. R. his SECT. V. Wherein his fifth proof is proved weak, as to his purpose, viz. Jer. 10.2, 3.
W. R. his SECT. VI. Wherein (as he pretends) the Doctours sixth proof is re∣felled, viz. Dan. 2.1, 2, 3, 4, 5. hath nothing in it, but words, being left of Sir Christopher unto himself; and therefore his Section is not worth the setting down, as I dare be judged by the learned of his own judge∣ment.
The Doctours SECT. III. The condemnation of Astrology by the word of God, in severall places of Scripture.
W. R. his CHAP. IV. Wherein he affirmeth that the Doctours reasons and ar∣guments against Astrology, is particularly examined and condemned, neither to consist with reason or truth.
VV. R. his SECT. I. VVherein, as he saith, the Doctours fore-fold reason is convinced.
W. R. his SECT. II. of CHAP. IV. wherein he saith, the Doctours Objection touching the di∣versity of Twins, is refelled. As also some other quirks against Astrology examined and convinced.
W. R. his SECT. III. of CHAP. IV. Wherein the Doctour indeavours to prove Astrology of no truth or certainty, as also its Rules and principles, are themselves of less truth, or ground, nay and indeed sensless.
SECT. IV. of CHAP. IV. Wherein the Doctour thinketh the ground of the Art whol∣ly shaken and overthrown, by affirming it meerly imagi∣nary, viz. the ninth and tenth Sphere, and in them the Zodiack, therein proveth and sheweth his own ignor ance the more apparently manifest.
W. R. his CHAP. V. Wherein the Doctours confutation of the objections that are brought for Astrology is (he saith) examined and refuted.
The Doctours SECT. V. Confuting the Objections that are brought in the be∣half of Astrology.
