AbstractThe Stoic conception of God as active everywhere in the world is shown to be very original in Antiquity, as shown by the fact that it was harshly dismissed by all the other philosophical schools. Is this divine activity limited in any way ? Several possibilities are considered and rejected: Zeus is always active in the world, he remains active during the conflagration, he is equally active from heaven to earth, he does not neglect individuals or petty (human) affairs. The connexion of these theological doctrine with ethics are examined.
