Did Socrates believe in God?

  • There is no particularly direct source from the pen of Socrates to suggest that he believed in God (let alone a soul or anything else) except from the dialogues of Plato. Reading Plato’s dialogues such as Euthyphro, The Apology, and others, you can see that Socrates makes numerous references to “god”. Of course, the very nature of this “god” is something not to my knowledge Socrates ever really expounded upon.
