(p.1) 1 What Is Arianism?
Archetypal Heresy

Maurice Wiles

Oxford University Press

Outlines the attitude of modern scholarship to heresy in general, and to Arianism in particular. Argues that Arianism as traditionally understood is largely a polemical construction created by Athanasius, and is an unsatisfactory concept for historical research. Finally offers its own sympathetic reconstruction of Arianism with a more positive evaluation of the Arian appeal to scripture, tradition, and research.

Keywords:   Arianism, Athanasius, heresy, reason, scripture, tradition
