  • Cp. Xenophon, Cyropaedia I. 6. 6. As this comparison suggests, this whole passage (8. 36 – 9. 19) should not be taken as directed primarily against the Christians (though Plotinus may possibly have them in mind at 9. 10-12). It is a general condemnation of the unintelligent and cowardly religiosity of people who expect the gods to intervene to get them out of troubles into which they have got themselves by ignoring the divinely established laws of nature and of human life; an intelligent Christian would have no difficulty in agreeing with it.
