This chapter argues that the synod of Sirmium (357) and its theological manifesto led Hilary to recast his efforts against his Homoian opponents. Following this synod, Basil of Ancyra and his theological circle issued a letter rejecting the Homoian theology of the Sirmium manifesto and stated their own Homoiousian theology. This chapter reviews in detail both the Sirmium manifesto and the Homoiousian response to it.
