7, section 3. chapter two THE HEPTAPLUS IN OUTLINE In order to provide a basis for my discussion of the Heptaplus, I shall give here a skeleton outline of its contents. 1 In a brief dedicatory epistle, Roberto Salviati, the Florentine humanist who undertook the printing and distribution of the work, describes these “ﬁrst fruits” of Pico as “most excellent, not just in my judgement, but in the judgement of everyone”; for this reason, he has printed an “accurate impression” at his own expense. 2 Pico himself prefaces the work with two proems.
37 See Ch. 4, n. 10. 38 H. , 234–236: “Calet Iuppiter, calet Mars, calet et Sol, sed Martis calor acer et violentus, Iovis beneﬁcus, in Sole et acre illud et violentum, Martis et Iovis beneﬁcam proprietatem videmus … . ” 41 H. 4; Garin, 236: “Restabat ut postquam de natura siderum dixerat de operibus deque eorum ofﬁcio dissereret, declarans in quem usum fundata et cui muneri delegata a Deo fuerint. … Caelestium corporum duae in universum manifestae operationes: motus et illuminatio. Motus duplex statuitur: alter mundi totius … the heptaplus in outline 35 limited to light alone, or to light and heat, or to “many and multiple other forces”.
The heptaplus in outline 33 The interpretation of the ﬁrst day, therefore, accounts for all ten spheres largely without differentiating between them. 32 This leaves four planets (Mercury, Venus, Mars and Jupiter) so far unaccounted for. 33 This principle is invoked here. 34 Two solutions propose themselves, both of which Pico refutes. 35 The second suggestion, that the assertions made regarding the sun and moon are sufﬁcient to apply also to the other planets, which stand in relation to them as particular to general, is rejected as inconsistent because if Moses had followed this principle, he would not have included anything about Saturn either.
