This task involves a careful examination of the political and ecclesiastical context of Homoian–Nicene tensions as found in available literature from this period. Topics discussed include Homoian Christianity in Illyricum and Italy after Constantius II, opposition to Auxentius of Milan, and Neo–Nicenes and their opponents.
