Of shining. chap. 41.
SHining is springing and streaming out of the substaunce of light. And commeth out of light without mingling of any other nature. And duteth as long as the light, of the which in commeth, as Austen saith. As saue as fyre is, as soone, is shining. Therefore if fyre were euer∣lasting, shining were euerlasting: Also shining commeth of light without di∣minishing of light, and without dry∣ling of the cleannesse of lyght, and with∣out discontinuance thereof,* with shew∣ing of it selfe and of other things, and with multiplieng of it selfe, as Basilius sayth.
