καθαίρονται δ' ἄλλως αἵματι μιαινόμενοι, ὁκοῖον εἴ τις εἰς πηλὸν ἐμβὰς πηλῷ ἀπονίζοιτο· μαίνεσθαι δ' ἂν δοκέοι εἴ τις μιν ἀνθρώπων ἐπιθράσαιτο οὕτω ποιέοντα. καὶ τοῖς ἀγάλμασι δὲ τουτέοισιν εὔχονται, ὁκοῖον εἴ τις τοῖς δόμοισι λεσχηνεύοιτο, οὔ τι γινώσκων θεοὺς οὐδ' ἥρωας οἵτινές εἰσι

Επιστημονικές ερμηνείες

Apollonius, Epist. 27.

Clement of Alex. Protrept. 4, p. 44.:
But if you will not listen to the prophetess, hear your own philosopher, Heraclitus, the Ephesian, imputing unconsciousness to images, “And to these images,” etc.

Elias Cretensis in Greg. Naz. 1.1. (cod. Vat. Pii. 11, 6, fol. 90 r).:
And Heraclitus, making sport of these people, says, “When defiled, they purify themselves with blood, just as if any one who had fallen into the mud should wash himself with mud!” For to suppose that with the bodies and blood of the unreasoning animals which they offer to their gods they can cleanse the impurities of their own bodies, which are stained with vile contaminations, is like trying to wash off mud from their bodies by means of mud.

Gregory Naz. Or. XXV. (xxiii.) 15, p. 466 ed. Par. 1778.

Origen, C. Cels. VII. 62, p. 384.
Origen, I. 5, p. 6.

Plotinus, Enn. I. 6, p. 54.
