Hi fellows, I found this line, expedit esse deos, et, ut expedit, esse putemus, in Ovid's Ars amatoria (first book, I don't know the verse number). An English translation I found renders it as, "’Tis well that the gods should exist and well that we should believe in them." I would like to know about the Latin original. How is the verb esse working there? And the verb expedit? I simply cannot discover any meaning in the Latin phrase. Thanks in advance.
