calling all english lit majors

i'm reading an old book called Robinson Cursoe. multiple times a chapter i run into a break in the sentence that looks like this " ..., viz., .." of-course in the book the ... are words and there are no quotations. what does this mean?

I looked it up and this is what I found:

that is to say; namely (used esp. to introduce examples, details, etc.). Abbreviation: viz.

does that make any sense?
