On Monsters

On Monsters and Especially the Damnation Game

from the Institutes of the Christian Religion
Seneca's complaint, as given by Augustine De Civit. Dei, c. 10, is well known.
"The sacred immortal, and invisible gods they exhibit in the meanest and most ignoble materials, and dress them in the clothing of men and beasts; some confound the sexes, and form a compound out of different bodies, giving the name of deities to objects, which, if they were met alive, would be deemed monsters."
Calvin, John (2008-04-03). Institutes of the Christian Religion (Kindle Locations 1845-1848). Signalman Publishing. Kindle Edition.
