Abstract

Although Plato states that the perceptible god that he describes in Timaeus is visible to the human eye, the reflection of the Cosmic Soul in the heavens has largely been explained away or forgotten in the Western mind. But Roman texts, early Christian testimony, and Imperial coins illustrate that Plato’s intersection in the heavens played a major role in Hellenistic cosmology and soteriology.
Keywords: Plato; Visible God; Cosmic Soul; zodiacal light; Milky Way; intersection Plato; Visible God; Cosmic Soul; zodiacal light; Milky Way; intersection
