QOTD- Celsus

We must never in any way neglect the Gods, neither by day nor night, in public or in private, neither in word nor deed; in working and in repose let the soul be continually directed to God.

— Celsus

  1. Interesting that Celsus starts out with gods & then ends with god. I wonder why that is?

  2. I read it in English. haven’t checked the original Greek BUT the singular God was often used as a place holder, a class category i.e. this particular God in this particular setting, receiving these particular prayers. you’ll see it across the ancient corpus.
