The Achievements of the Council of Aquileia
This chapter first discusses the evolution in Gratian and Ambrose's relations and examines under what circumstances the emperor dissolved the Valentinian distinction between imperial preference and political religious policy. It then considers the events of the council at Aquileia and their significance for the history of the Nicene–Homoian conflict. It is argued that Gratian did not modify his ecclesiastical political position toward the Homoians until after Theodosius issued his general anti-heretical edict of 10 January 381. The council of Aquileia did not end the conflict between Nicenes and Homoians in the west. Evidence in the synodical letters from Aquileia shows that the Homoian minority in Milan still possessed leadership, held assemblies, and were capable of creating major disturbances in the city.
