MATTHEW OF WXSTMIN8TEB. A.D. 352. A.D. 344. The Amari impiety persecuted first of all Athanasius, the bishop of the city of Alexandria, and afterwards other eminent bishops, with banishment, imprisonment, and various kinds of affliction. A.D. 345. Maximin, bishop of Treves, flourished, by whom Athanasius was honourably received and protected, while he was being sought for by Constantine, who intended to punish him. A.D. 346. Nectarine, bishop of the church at Vienne, was eminent for his learning and faith ; he was the principal person at the council of Aries ; and he both taught and preached in the church, that the essence of the Father, of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost was of one nature, power, divinity, and virtue. A.D. 347* Antony the monk departed to the Lord, in the wilderness, in the hundred and fifth year of his age* A.D. 348. The remains of the blessed Timothy were brought to Constantinople. A.D. 349. While the heretic Arrius, relying on the favour of Constantine, was going to Constantinople to the church, with the intention of contending for his belief, against the faithful in Christ, turning aside in the forum of Constantine to ease himself, he suddenly left his bowels, and his life, and his heresy at once on the same spot. A.D. 350. Constantius having entered Rome, the bones of Saint Andrew the Apostle and of Saint Luke the Evangelist were brought to Constantinople, and deposited there with great honour. A.D. 351. Hilarius, the bishop of Poictiers, who having been driven out by the Arrians, had gone into exile into Phrygia, gives a book to Constantius at Constantinople, and then returned to Gaul. A.D. 352. The heresy of the Anthropomorphites1 arose in Syria and Macedonia, deriving its origin from a certain Anthropoe, who asserted that Jesus had only a human form, and that his Godhead was distinct from his bodily parts ; which is contrary to the Catholic faith. About the same time the bishop Paphnutius, a man of eminent virtue, flourished. There is a manifest mistake in our author's statement here. The sect of the Anthropomorphites derived its name from άνθρωπος, aunt, and μορφήt form, and not from the name of its founder.
