Plato on God - Dictionary of Arguments

Höffe I 40
God/Nomoi/Platon/Höffe: While the Politeia is reticent about the religious implications of the purpose, the idea of good, the Nomoi explicitly declare God to be the measure of all things.
The refutation of three errors about the gods, a task corresponding to the poet's criticism of the Politeia, is one of the main tasks of the legislation (Nomoi, Book X).
Cult: Incidentally, the Politeia also declares the regulation of the cult to be the most beautiful legislation, admittedly left to the Delphic Apollo. And the worship of the classical Greek gods is self-evident for the just man.(1)


1.Politeia IV, 443a.
