Having with difficulty obtained a little leisure, I have been able to recover from bodily fatigue on my return from Armenia, and to collect the sheets of my reply to Eunomius which was suggested by your wise advice; so that my work is now arranged in a complete treatise, which can be read between covers. However, I have not written against both his pamphlets; even the leisure for that was not granted; for the person who lent me the heretical volume most uncourteously sent for it again, and allowed me no time either to write it out or to study it.

All his insulting epithets are shewn by facts to be false.

Epistemological theories of the patristic authors seldom attract attention of the researchers. This unfortunate status quo contrasts with a crucial place of the theory of knowledge in the thought of such prominent authors as Origen and the Cappadocian fathers. This book surveys the patristic epistemological discourse in its various settings. Download PDF

Unfortunately, in passing through customs these boxes became disarranged, and what had been an abbey church was instantly transformed into an unusable pile of stones.

Hearst placed them all in storage, and that is where they still were when their owner died in They were then purchased by a private company which undertook to reassemble them, and which, after a considerable effort, managed to do so. T h e abbey today is a parish church on the outskirts of Miami.

No one who has studied the so-called 'Arian' controversy can contemplate so unguided a success without sympathy, for the two enterprises are in many ways similar—with this exception, that those who were reconstructing the abbey knew they had all the parts! T h e same cannot be said of those studying Arius or his successors.

In the century and a half separating us from Newman's Arians of the Fourth Century there has been an enormous revival of interest in Arius and 'Arianism'; 1 but one that has been more notable for its volume than its unity. It is not quite true to say to paraphrase an eighteenth-century author that there are tot fere theoriae, quot sunt auctores,2 but even when there is agreement as to the identity of the 'stones', there is very often none as to where we should put them.

It is this sense of lacking a map that lies behind the present study— not exactly Omar Khayyam's sense that he always left by the same door he came in, but rather frustration that visits to 'Doctor and Saint' should be so consistently inconclusive. T h e only way forward that really seemed open was the original 1 For recent works relating to Arius and his followers see below chap. Gamier et al. So, without quite realizing what was involved, I decided to read as many of them as possible with as fresh an eye as possible.

I was particularly determined to try to read the losers as thinkers in their own right, and not just as foils for their opponents. Whether I was successful or not, I will leave for the reader to judge, but I did find myself repeatedly brought up against the same two questions: who were these people talking to, and why did they think it was all so immensely important? It is easier to pose such questions than to answer them, especially as we are so much better informed about the later stages of the controversy than the earlier.

When Italian mountaineers are confronted with a particularly difficult peak, they are said to call the foothold from which they approach it as their pou sto—almost literally their 'stand-point'—a secure place from which to approach an otherwise insurmountable task.

It seemed clear that to try to approach these questions fruitfully we needed a pou sto, a fixed point from which to approach the whole. For, while the controversy sparked by Arius ultimately did come to embrace almost the entire Mediterranean world, it started as a clash of individuals. T h e best place to look for a pou sto, then, seemed to be with a single individual, and not with one of the victors. T h a t considerably narrowed the field, but of all who might have been considered, one of the most attractive was Eunomius, the former bishop of Cyzicus.

Not only do his works survive in comparative abundance, but he was attacked with almost equal vehemence by both sides, which makes him valuable from either point of view.

T h e study which follows, then, is devoted to Eunomius of Cyzicus, but with at least one eye cocked to those parts of the mountain visible from this particular pou sto. Since, then, this work is structured around a life, it is written as a continuous narrative, with theoretical details and wider currents of thought added as they occur.

T h e original sources underlying it are indicated as fully as possible in the notes, which thereby form a kind of 'under-book'. My goal throughout was to try to read these sources as attentively and without presupposition as possible. Clearly, I have not always succeeded, but to the extent that I have, I can hope to have made the slopes of the mountain a little less formidable to those Preface vii who approach them, and perhaps a little more comprehensible as well.

N o study of this kind is undertaken without the encouragement and help of others. Any complete list would add to an already unwieldy text, but some at least must be given special mention. In particular I would like to thank Prof. Maurice Wiles for his kind encouragement over many years of composition, and my own monastic community for their patience in support of an enterprise which has had to be sandwiched in amongst much other work.

I hope the reader will find it useful to read; there is no doubt that the author found it instructive to write. Adamantius, Dial. Actius, Ep. Mazona Exp. Ambrose, Auxent. Job yud.

Arianism is a Christological doctrine first attributed to Arius c. AD — , [1] [2] a Christian presbyter in Alexandria, Egypt. Arian theology holds that the Son of God is not co-eternal with God the Father [1] [a] and is distinct from the Father therefore subordinate to him. The term Arian is derived from the name Arius and, like the term Christian , it was not what they called themselves, but rather a term used by outsiders. The Arian concept of Christ is based on the belief that the Son of God did not always exist but was begotten within time by God the Father, therefore Jesus was not co-eternal with God the Father. There was a controversy between two interpretations of Jesus' divinity Homoousianism and Arianism based upon the theological orthodoxy of the time, one Trinitarian and the other also a derivative of Trinitarian orthodoxy, [3] p6 and both of them attempted to solve its respective theological dilemmas. Arius stated: "If the Father begat the Son, then he who was begotten had a beginning in existence, and from this it follows there was a time when the Son was not.

Don't have an account? Five major interpretations of Arianism are considered. According to the Hanson-Wiles interpretation, the Arians used psilanthropic argument to emphasize that God suffered in Christ.

The Catholic Historical Review Theodoret, in his Compendium of Heretical Fables , 4, 3, dis credits him with re-naming theology technology which sounds surprisingly like the modern renaming of homo sapiens as techno-sapiens! What motivated the present sequel was his determination, in an attempt to fast-forward the apparent stalemate in current scholarly debate on the Arian controversy, to re-read as many of the original sources as possible with as fresh an eye as possible, and to try to read the losers as thinkers in their own right, and not just as foils for their opponents.
