The Heavens

An early entry in Edwards’s “Images” notebook serves as a concise summary of his reinscripturated reading of the heavens:

The heaven’s being filled with glorious, luminous bodies, is to signify the glory and happiness of the heavenly inhabitants; and amongst these, the sun signifies Christ and the moon, the church. (“Image” no. 4)
