As we have written again on piety, from different ancient Hellenes writers, we will continue that tradition today, by presenting a taste of platonic theology, through the book Laws, which is the last dialogue of Plato. It consists of 12 books and an additional one. In the tenth book we read about three major crimes, which are three cases of disrespect against the gods. The first case is that gods do not exist. The second case is that gods don't care about humane problems. The third case is that humans can bribe the gods with offerings so that they won't be harsh on his unjust actions. Those ideas are crimes against gods and Plato is proving that ignorance is the cause of them. He also proves why those three ideas are wrong. In the article we will see a synopsis of the tenth book, centering aroung piety.
