polytheist extractions

Caesarius of Arles, Sermon 52.3

“And what is this, when foolish men think that they have to run to the rescue of the moon as if it is in distress! When its fiery globe is covered at fixed times, as a result of the natural movement of the air, or is suffused with the burning color of the setting sun nearby, they believe that it is as it were some assault of spells against the heavens, which they think they can defeat by a blast of the trumpet or rediculous jangle of ringing bells – using their faulty Pagan reasoning, they think that they win the moon’s favor by their sacrilegious uproar.” – Caesarius of Arles, Sermon 52.3
