For instance, Habdelić offers a descriptive meaning of the following Latin terms: astronomia (mestria od jakosti ku zvezde imaju), astrologia (mestria od obraobračanje zvezdi, neba), physica (mestria, ali navuk od nature vsakojačke). In a similar way Habdelić describes certain astronomical terms. Thus zodijacus (sunčeni put po nebu), duodecim signa zodiaci (dvanadeste znamenj po keh sunce leto dan preide), atomus (sunčeni prah), […]  aequinoctium (sunce oposred neba), solstitium aestivum (sunce gda je najveći den), aequinoctium vernum (sunce gda je jednaka noć z dnevom u protuletju).
