Ante-Nicene Fathers, Vol VIII:
Pseudo-Clementine Literature.: Chapter XVI

Early Church Fathers  Index     

Chapter XVI.—Gods of the Egyptians.

“Therefore you ringleaders among the Egyptians, boasting of meteorology, and promising to judge the natures of the stars, by reason of the evil opinion lurking in them, subjected that name to all manner of dishonour as far as in them lay.  For some of them taught the worship of an ox called Apis, some that of a he-goat, some of a cat, some of a serpent; yea, even of a fish, and of onions, and rumblings in the stomach, 1125 and common sewers, and members of irrational animals, and to myriads of other base abominations they gave the name of god.”
