Quick Reference

(c.368–c.439),

Arian historian. His ‘History of the Church’ (c.300–430) survives only in fragments and in an epitome by Photius. It is inaccurate and biased, but is of value because of its use of excellent sources and for its description of some of the chief Arian personalities.

Subjects: Medieval and Renaissance History (500 to 1500).
