His quadrature, from thy orbicular world; The world is orbicular or round; the empyreal Heaven is a quadrature or square. Milton had before said, that it was undetermin'd square or round, B. ii. 1048; and so it might be to Satan viewing it at that distance: But here he follows the opinion of Gas-sendus and others, who say that the empyreum, or Heaven of Heavens, is of a square figure, because the holy city is so described: " And the city lieth four-square, and the length is as large as the breadth," Rev. xxi. 16.
