Xenophanes of Colophon
!!!Eusebius: Preparation for the Gospel Book 13 'Rightly, therefore, does also Xenophanes of Colophon, when teaching that God is one and incorporeal, add this: " One God there is, supreme o'er gods and men, Not like in form to mortals, nor in mind." 'And again: " But mortals fondly deem that gods are born, Have voice, and form, and raiment like their own." 'And again: "If then the ox and lion had but hands To paint and model works of art, like man, The ox would give his god an oxlike shape, The horse a figure like his own would frame, And each would deify his kindred form." Eusebii Pamphili Evangelicae Praeparationis. Libri XV. Ad codiced manuscriptos denuo collatos recensuit anglice nunc primum reddidit notis et indicibus instruxit. E. H. Gifford, S. T. P.
