THE PRIMUM MOBILE

***

It is the ninth sphere

Gives motion to other spheres

God gives it movement

***

NOTE: The ninth sphere is the next sphere that Dante will visit. This sphere is the Primum Mobile, or the Prime Mover. We can regard it as the created universe’s outermost sphere. Aristotle spoke about the Prime Mover. It is that which gives motion to the other spheres. It is moved by God. What is beyond the ninth sphere is not located in space or time.
