appropriation of Logos by Christianity

The classical Greek notion of Logos expresses a concept of cosmic order (with governing power) evident in persons that was broadly appealing in the pre-Common Era world (i.e., for the West: pre-Roman Empire). Way back, with Heraclitus, an element of the cosmic order in persons allowed persons to perceive the cosmic order. For the Stoics, this order was found immanent in all of reality, thus discernible by persons.
