THE ARIANS OF THE FOURTH CENTURY

ARIANS

OF

THE FOURTH CENTURY

BY

JOHN HENRY CARDINAL NEWMAN

Fret not thyself because of the ungodly, neither be thou envious against
the evil doers. For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and be
withered even as the green herb. Put thou thy trust in the Loan, and be
doing good; dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed.

PSALM xxxvn. 1—3.

THE following work was written in the early part of last year, for Messrs. Rivington’s “ Theological Library ;” but as it seemed, on its completion, little fitted for the objects with which that publication has been undertaken, it makes its appearance in an independent form. Some apology is due to the reader for the length of the introductory chapter, but it was intended as the opening of a more extensive undertaking. It may be added, to prevent mistake, that the theological works cited at the foot of the page, are referred to for the facts, rather than the opinions they contain; though some of them, as the “ Defensio Fidei Nicenae,” evince gifts, moral and intellectual, of so high a cast, as to render it a privilege to be allowed to sit at the feet of their authors, and to receive the words, which they have been, as it were, commissioned to deliver.
