Aratus was a Greek didactic poet who published works that were very influential in Athens. During Paul's address on the Aeropagus in the Aeropagus sermon, Paul speaking of God, quotes the fifth line of Aratus's Phenomena saying, "For we too are his offspring",[1] some Greeks were converted by this sermon, including Dionysius the Areopagite.[2]
