From Chapter 21 of the Decline & Fall

Carmenque Christo quasi Deo dicere secum invicem. Plin. Epist. x. 97. The sense of Deus,Oebs, Elohim, in the ancient languages, is critically examined by Le Clerc (Ars Critica, p. 150-156), and the propriety of worshipping a very excellent creature is ably defended by the Socinian Emlyn (Tracts, p. 29-36, 51-145).
