Hilary of Poitiers

Conflicts of Conscience and Law in the Fourth-Century Church

Lionel Wickham

Liverpool University Press

Translated Texts for Historians LUP

Two texts are presented in English translation here. The first is what remains of a historical work Hilary wrote against two distinguished contemporary bishops, Valens and Ursacius, whose intervention on behalf of the Emperor Constantius Hilary thought disastrous. They throw a flood of light upon scenes of disarray, violence and betrayal in the Church life of the fourth century.
