Headword: Εἱμαρμένη
Adler number: epsiloniota,143
Translated headword: fate
Vetting Status: high
The [existing] things that lie beyond the [sphere of the] moon [exist] on account of the [following] four causes: according to god, according to fate, according to our choice, according to chance. For example, to get into the ship depends on us, but the fact that when there is fine weather in winter a storm suddenly supervenes depends on chance. But the fact that the sinking ship is kept safe beyond expectation [belongs to] god’s providence. Moods of fate are many.
Greek Original:
Εἱμαρμένη: τὰ μετὰ τὴν σελήνην τέσσαρσιν αἰτίαις διάκεινται, κατὰ θεόν, καθ' εἱμαρμένην, κατὰ προαίρεσιν ἡμετέραν, κατὰ τύχην. οἷον τὸ μὲν εἰσελθεῖν εἰς τὴν ναῦν ἐφ' ἡμῖν ἐστι τὸ μέντοι ἐν εὐδίᾳ καὶ χειμῶνι καὶ ζάλην ἐξαίφνης ἐπιγίνεσθαι, κατὰ τύχην ἐστί: τὸ μέντοι βαπτιζομένην τὴν ναῦν παρ' ἐλπίδα σωθῆναι, προνοίας θεοῦ. τῆς δὲ εἱμαρμένης πολλοί εἰσι τρόποι.
