Early Church Fathers
27 Athan. Hist. Arian. 31-46; Ruf. H. E. i. 21; Soc. ii. 36; Sulp. Sev. H. S. ii. 39: cf. Theodoret, H. E. ii. 16, dialogue between the emperor and Liberius; Am. Marcel. xv. 7.
28 The dialogue is preserved in Theodoret, H. E. ii. 16. Cf. Hil. Fragm. v., vi.
29 He means the Arian bishops. It is like the terms Athanasius employs.
30 One would have expected from Liberius "the same," ie. omoj instead of omoioj.
31 iii. 15, and references there; Athan. de Synodis, 8, 38; Soc. ii. 35, 36; cf. Theodoret, H. E. ii. 24.
32 So also says Socrates. But Epiphanius asserts that he was ordained by George of Alexandria in Taurus. Adv. haeres. iii. 1, 38 (haeres. lxxiii.).
33 Otherwise called Germinius. He was afterwards promoted to the bishopric of Sirmium, according to Athan. Hist. Arian. 74; cf. de Synodis, 1, 8.
34 See, above, chap. vi. near the end.
35 Athanasius also excuses the lapse of Hosius on the ground that he acted under compulsion.
36 Not the individual letter of Eudoxius, according to some readings, but of the Synod of Antioch.
37 Philost. iv. 4-6, 8; x. 12; and fragment in Suidas s. Eudoxius; Athan. Hist. Arian. 4, 5; Hil. de Synod. 8, 9, 90; Soc. ii. 37, 40; Theodoret, H. E. ii. 25, 26.
38 Independent document. Cf. Theodoret, ii. 26, who alludes to the first part of this letter, then apparently mixes another one by Constantius with it.
39 Athan. Hist. Arian. 35-41; Epistles of Liberius, M. P. L. 8; Hil. Fragm. iv.-vi.; Theodoret, H. E. ii. 17; Ruf. i. 22; Philost. iv. 3; Soc. ii. 37; Sulp. Sev. H. S. ii. 39. Many independent details.
40 The fourth Sirmium council, a.d. 358.
41 Philost. iv. 10, 11; Athan. de Synodis, 2-7; Soc. ii. 37, 39; cf. Theodoret, H. E. ii. 18, 26. Soz.'s facts are more voluminous, and the grouping independent.
42 Cf. Am. Marcell. xvii. 7; Idatius under 358 in Descriptio Consulum.
43 A story from tradition by Soz.
44 Athan. de Synodis, 8-11; Soc. ii. 37; Ruf. i. 21; Philost. H. E. iv. 10; Theodoret, H. E. ii. 18.
45 a.d. 359.
46 This speech is quoted directly in Soc. ii. 37.
47 Athan. de Synodis, 3; quoted by Soc. ii. 37.
48 The emperor had requested ten; cf. also ii. 23.
49 Athan. de Synodis, c. 10; Hil. Fragm. viii., Latin form; Soc. ii. 37; Theod. ii 19.
50 In addition to the references in 18, Athan. Synodis, 55; Ep. ad. Afros episcopos, 3, 4. Documents reproduced in Soc. ii. 37.
51 The reply of the bishops to Constantius, also reproduced in Theodoret, H. E. ii. 20, from Athan. de Synodis, 55. Soz. presents the best general grouping of the facts.
52 Soc. ii. 38, from which the most of this chapter is derived; a few details in addition are given by Soz. Cf. Theodoret, H. E. ii. 26.
53 Soc. ii. 38; order and detail from Socrates.
54 Soz. alludes to the original acts of the Synod at the end, and Soc. ii. 39, to Sabinus' collection. Sabinus probably reported the exact originals. Athan. de Synodis, 12, 13; Hil. contra Constantium, 12; Philost. iv. 11; Sulp. Sev. H. S. ii. 42. Cf. Theodoret, H. E. ii. 26; Athan. de Synodis, 29.
55 The author of the first formulary of Sirmium is here given by Soz. Soc. stated it, ii. 30.
56 See above, 16.
57 Given by Soc. ii. 40.
58 Mistake for Annianus, as given in 24.
59 Soc. refers anxious readers to the collection by Sabinus, ii. 39.
60 A few hints in Philost. iv. 12; Soc. ii. 41. Cf. Sulp. Sev. H. S. ii. 43-45; Theodoret, H. E. ii. 27. But the main part is independent.
61 Cf. iv. 18; twenty. Philost. tells us that Acacius prepared the minutes of this Synod.
