9780199280131: Marcellus of Ancyra and the Lost Years of the Arian Controversy 325-345 (Oxford Early Christian Studies)

Is it true, as has often been claimed in recent years, that there was no real controversy in the period immediately following the Council of Nicaea? Sara Parvis, in this lively and meticulous study, argues not. She shows that the two opposing parties which had formed in support of Alexander of Alexandria and Arius in the years before Nicaea continued their activities afterwards, targeting one another with ruthless zeal at a series of synods which may look neutral but are revealed to be demonstrably partisan. Only the deaths of all the original party leaders except Marcellus of Ancyra, and the rise of Athanasius, broke the impasse which followed and allowed new political and theological configurations to form.

About the Author:


Sara Parvis is Lecturer in Patristics at the University of Edinburgh.

Review:

Parvis has done a splendid job of far-reaching historical reconstruction; she has indeed illuminated this dark star, rescuing him from the marginality...Her book is not just a scholarly tour de force but deserves, and I hope will reach, a much wider audience. * Expository Times * Sara Parvis has given us a thoroughly researched study, which in the course of disentangling a number of knotty problems displays shrewd judgement, immense ingenuity, and a panache that would do credit to a political columnist. * Stuart G. Hall, Journal of Theological Studies *
