Subject:        *Cymbeline* question
 
Actually this isn't a question so much about the play itself, but about an
Elizabethan (?) notion apparently evidenced in the elegy for Imogen and Cloten:
"Fear no more the lightning flash/Nor th'all-dreaded thunder-stone."
 
It was believed that something solid or heavy accompanied lightning, correct?
Can someone direct me to any references about this belief?

Hello all... I was wondering if there is anyone out there who will know
which play this phrase is taken from.
 
        I have touche'd the highest point of all my greatness
        and from that full meridean of my glory I haste now to my
        setting, I shall fally like a bright exhaulation in the sky and
        no man see me more.
 
A small clue would help me tremendously.
 
                Orlando A. Pabotoy.
