Athanasius and his Orations against the Arians
are known for three things. First of all, the Orations
are famous for being a landmark in the development of the orthodox Christological (and Trinitarian) doctrines. Second, the Orations against the Arians
are well known for their pervasive use of Scripture, more than other contemporaneous works. Thirdly, Athanasius and his Orations
are considered infamous by many scholars for the polemical style in denouncing his opponents. Athanasius collectively brands his opponents as Arians, portraying them with the use of quite hostile language in a most unfavourable light. As a result, scholarly evaluations of Athanasius and his Orations against the Arians
vary greatly in their assessment. This monograph brings together these three strands, which are frequently discussed in relative isolation from each other.
