In the Life of Apollonius, the Athenian author Philostratus, a sophist who lived from c.170 to c.247, tells the story of Apollonius of Tyana, a charismatic teacher and miracle worker from the first century CE who belonged to the school of Pythagoras. It is an apologetic work, in which Philostratus tries to show that Apollonius was a man with divine powers, but not a magician. He also pays attention to Apollonius' behavior as a sophist.

Although the hero is known from several other sources, Philostratus' vie romancée is our most important source.

In the following PDF, you will find the first volume of the translation by F.C. Conybeare, which was published in 1912 in the Loeb Classical Library.

"In no other manner, I believe, can one exhibit a fitting respect for the divine being, beyond any other men make sure of being singled out as an object of his favor and good-will, than by refusing to offer to God(dess) which we termed First, who is One and separate from all ...

For S?He needs nothing even from beings higher than ourselves.


Nor is there any plant or animal which earth sends up or nourishes, to which some pollution is not incident.

We should use in relation to (him|her) solely of the higher speech, I mean of that which issues not by the lips; and from the noblest of beings we must ask for blessings by the noblest faculty we possess, and that faculty is intelligence, which needs no organ.

On these principles then we ought not on any account to sacrifice victims to the mighty and supreme God(dess).
"

Appolonius of Tyana, as quoted by Eusebius
