De Sacramentis 1.1.18

1.1.18 “Of what matter the firmament was made; and of what nature it was made.” Hugh asks about the “nature of the firmament, … whether it was made from pure fire, or from air, or even from water, or finally from two or three of these combined..” He answers that he frankly does not know, no that “much labour should be expended in the investigation of these matters, which reason does not understand and authority… does not approve.” What we do know is the function of the firmament, which is to divide waters from waters.
