Ficino, Marsilio – Selected Letters

From a letter from Marsilio Ficino to  Rinaldo Orsini, Bishop of Florence.

People will perhaps laugh at a priest who heeds astrology. But I, relying on the authority of the Persians, Egyptians, and Chaldeans, considered that while earthly matters were indeed the concern of others, heavenly matters in truth were the sole concern of the priest; so that while human affairs might be left to human counsel, matters for supreme authority should be referred to the ruler of heaven.
