The Date Of On The Council Of Nicaea

1. Robertson, Select Writings (1892), 149. In his prolegomena to the volume, however, Robertson tentatively accepts J. H. Newman's date of 352 (Ixiii, cf. 150 n. 2).

2. Opitz on 2.15/6; J. Quasten, Patrology 3 (Utrecht, Antwerp, and Westminster, Md., 1960), 61; B. Altaner and A. Stuibcr, Patrologie7 (Freiburg, 1966), 271; M. Tetz, TRE 4 (1979), 339; F. Young, From Nicaea to Cbalcedon (London, 1983), 76. Opitz himself was presumably influenced by 'etwa 350' given as the date by O. Bardenhewer, Geschichte der altkirchlichen Literatur 3 (Freiburg im Breisgau, 1912), 71.

4. Brenncckc, Hilarius (1984), 11 n. 41, 306 n. 290. It is not at all clear on what basis Hanson, Search (1988), 419, makes the confident pronouncement:*De Decretis we can date to 356 or 357.*

5. Chapter XV.

7. Unfortunately, the complimentary address f) of| Sid&ais (2.3) does not help to define his status: see L. Dinneen, Titles of Address in Christian Greek Epistolography to 527 A.D. (Diss. Washington, 1929), 63/4,109; H. Zilliacus, Untersuchungen zu den abstrakten Anredeformen und Höflichkeitstiteln im Griechiscljen (Helsinki, 1949), 66: 'ohne Unterschied auf Stand und Rang.'

8. As duly noted by Opitz on 3.10.

9. Also Orat. c. Ar. 1.9,1.17, 2.43, 3.14, cf. Chapter V.

11. Kopecek, Neo-Arianism 1 (1979), 127-132. He adopts a date of c. 350 with appeal to Schwartz and Opitz (116 n. 4).

12. Chapter XIII.
