In Self-Reliance by Emerson, the online texts I have found say:
He will then see prayer in all action. The prayer of the farmer kneeling in his field to weed it, the prayer of the rower kneeling with the stroke of his oar, are true prayers heard throughout nature, though for cheap ends. Caratach, in Fletcher's Bonduca, when admonished to inquire the mind of the god Audate, replies, --
"His hidden meaning lies in our endeavours; Our valors are our best gods."
Is Audate the name of a mythical god, a fictional god in Fletcher's Bonduca, or some kind of label for the Christian god , like "the holy ghost", or something else?
