Stoic Theology: Proofs for the Existence of the Cosmic God and of the Traditional Gods : Including a Commentary on Cleanthes' Hymn on Zeus

Front Cover
Eburon Uitgeverij B.V., 2007 - Religion - 256 pages
The ancient Stoics constructed an elaborate set of proofs for the existence of the Greek gods which proved highly influential for later theological and philosophical proofs. P. A. Meijer s Stoic Theology, the first book on the subject in almost thirty years, analyzes these proofs from a fresh perspective. This valuable resource features a thorough examination of pre-Christian theological argumentation as well as new insights on the relationship between God and the deities in ancient Greek thought, in a book sure to interest scholars of philosophy and religion."
