In his masterly exam of Arianism, Rowan Williams argues that Arius himself used to be truly a devoted theological conservative whose quandary used to be to safeguard the unfastened and private personality of the Christian God. His "heresy" grew out of an try and unite conventional biblical language with radical philosophical rules and strategies and was once, from the beginning, concerned with problems with authority within the church. hence, the trouble of the early fourth century was once not just concerning the doctrine of God but in addition in regards to the family members among emperors, bishops, and "charismatic" lecturers within the church's decision-making. during his dialogue, Williams increases the important wider questions of ways heresy is outlined and the way sure different types of traditionalism remodel themselves into heresy. Augmented with a brand new appendix during which Williams interacts with major scholarship for the reason that 1987, this booklet presents attention-grabbing examining for an individual attracted to church background and the advance of Christian doctrine.

Specifically, the attempt has been made to show that this book in its full form was the source for the additional detail in the Latin passio about Arius' Melitian phase, since the translator does not mention Sozomen as a source, and none of the other recognizable supplementary sources named carries an adequately complete version of the story: the one otherwise unidentifiable source, a Latin lihtllus containing much material on Athanasius, would then have been the Jubilee Book itself, in a rather fuller Latin version than that surviving in the Verona ~ex.
