The hierarchy of the universe, by Robert Fludd, 1617. The soul descends from perfect unity in the heavens to multiplicity on earth, but seeks to re-ascend. The cosmos is divided here into 3 realms: the elemental, the celestial and the spiritual. To Fludd, the spheres of the planets were both real places and stages in a spiritual progress.
