Turns to the fourth and the most important point of departure: pre-existing tensions among theological trajectories present c.300. Looks first at Alexander and Athanasius’ theology and finds parallels in Gregory Thaumaturgus, in some Antiochene theology and in some third century Alexandrian figures. Looks second at ‘Eubseian’ theology, a category that includes diverse figures such as Arius, Eusebius of Caesarea and Eusebius of Nicomedia and Asterius. Both trajectories considered here owe something to Origen. Also questions the usefulness of the term ‘subordinationism.’

Keywords:   Alexandria, Arius, Athanasius, Eusebius of Caesarea, Generation of the Son, Trinity
