.....dicam nunc quid homini tribuendum sit: quanquam id ipsum quod homini tri-
bueris, Deo tribuitur......

...... Deus, qui cæteris animalibus sapientiam non dedit, naturalibus ea munimentis
ab incursu et periculo tutiora generavit. Hominem vero quia nudum fragilemque
formavit, ut eum sapientia potius instrueret, dedit ei præter cetera hunc pietatis aflec-
tum, ut bomo bominem tueatur, diligat, foveat, contraque omnia pericula et accipiat et
præstet auxilium. Lactantius, vi. 10.
