Focuses on the period between 340 and 350. It begins by considering how Athanasius drew on some previous tradition to create the category ‘arian.’ Also considers the theology of Athanasius’ Orations Against the Arians and the success of Athanasius in getting some significant support in the West. The categories ‘east’ and ‘west’ are brought under suspicion, however, in discussion of the council of Serdica in 343. The ‘western’ members present included a large number of Greek and Balkan bishops. Ends by considering attempts at rapprochement between ‘east’ and ‘west’ in the later 340s and the ‘Macrostich’ creed.

Keywords:   arianism, Athanasius’s Orations, east and west, Rome, Serdica
