This appears to be a regular vindication of the Copernican theory, and was published in 1640.
In 1632 appeared his "Dialogues" on the Ptolemaic and Copernican systems.
The Copernican theory first clearly explained the —— of the planets.

Primarily religion is as much a conviction as is the Copernican system of astronomy.
As the Copernican theory does not meet all these tests, it is unsatisfactory.
