HEAVENS * (often with 'the') plural form of _heaven_: the distant sky of the sun, moon, and stars. * _c._ 1594, William Shakespeare, _The Comedie of Errors_, I i 66: What obscured light THE HEAUENS did grant. * 1625, Nathanæl Carpenter, _Geography delineated forth in two bookes_, I iv 77: THE HEAUENS...are carried in 24 houres from East to West. 1930 March, _Nature_, 179 2: The moon's path lies in that belt of THE HEAVENS known as the zodiac. * 1981, E.R. Harrison, _Cosmology_, XII 250: In an infinite...universe the stars would collectively outshine the Sun and flood THE HEAVENS with light far more intense than is observed. * (religion) plural form of _heaven_: the abode of God or the gods; the abode of the blessed departed. * 1832, Charles Coleman, _The Mythology of the Hindus_, XIII 220: Like the Buddhas, they [_the Jains_] believe that there is a plurality of HEAVENS and hells. * 1906 July 30, _Washington Post_, 12 4: Christ's coming from the HEAVENS has entered into the life of humanity as the Founder of the world to come. * (rare) plural form of _heaven_: the near sky of the weather, etc. * (rare) plural form of _heaven_ the will of God or the gods, Providence. * 1611, King James Bible, Daniel iv 26: After that thou shalt haue knowen that THE HEAUENS doe rule. USAGE NOTES The plural form "heavens" or THE HEAVENS has been typical in reference to the impersonal sky since the 17th century. The plural form became less common in reference to the abode of God, the gods, or the blessed departed as the medieval view of celestial spheres was disproven; it is still commonly used, however, in discussing theologies such as Buddhism which retain numerous heavens or levels of heaven. The term is capitalized as HEAVENS or THE HEAVENS when (infrequently) used as a proper name. TRANSLATIONS
