Ambrose of Milan and the End of the Nicene-Arian Conflicts

Synopsis

This provocative new study reevaluates the history of the early Church. Focusing on the struggle between Ambrose of Milan, upholder of orthodoxy and the famous `Nicene' creed still used in the western Church today, and the heretical Arians who denied the divinity of Christ, Dr Williams challenges the traditional picture of the triumph of orthodoxy. His book is full of illuminating new insights on the social, political and theological entanglements of early Christianity.
