Heliocentrism

In his well known speech on order from Shakespeare’s Troilus and Cressida, Ulysses claims that the sun sits “amidst” the other planets and “corrects the ill aspects of planets evil.”

While Ulysses does not believe the sun is at the center of the solar system, the geocentrist does believe the sun is at the center of the spheres, because the sun is in the fourth heaven of seven.
