Δ, pseud.  [Δ]




Biblical Authority, Miracle, Astronomy

    Argues that Joshua's injunction that the sun should stand still is not to be understood in 'philosophical' terms, and that it 'referred merely to the appearance of the scene'. Also argues that a miracle was certainly wrought, and that it was probably 'effected by means of a cessation of the earth's motion on its axis'. (233)
