 The End of Arianism

Show Summary Details


Arianism has been extensively studied as a fourth‐century phenomenon, usually seen as brought to an end by the Council of Constantinople in the East and the Council of Aquileia in the West (both 381 ce). The chapter is concerned with the ending of Arianism as a significant movement within the early church. This involves giving special attention to the Homoians, the Neo‐Arians and the Theodosian Code in the East, to the Opus Imperfectum in Matthaeum in the West, and to Ulfila and the Goths.
