Headword: *telei/a
Adler number: tau,271
Translated headword: of the rite, related to ritual, perfect
Vetting Status: high
Hera of the Rite and Zeus of the Rite used to be honored in marriages, as overseers of marriage. Marriage is a rite [telos]. Hence the sacrifice occurring before marriage is called "preceding the rite" [proteleia].[1]
[Note] that[2] the perfection [teleiotes] naturally befalling man is twofold: the cognitive, which we call knowledge, and the appetitive, which we name virtue.
