Bishop of Anazarbus Cilicia

ATHANASIUS of Anazarbus 4th c.. This bishop of Anazarbus Cilicia supported Arius from the first. He did not take part in the Council of Nicaea 325, perhaps having found a way to avoid it, but was obliged to subscribe to the homoousios. According to Philostorgius he was later Aetius’s teacher. We have a few fragments from him, affirming the most radical theses of Arian doctrine. CPG 2, 2060-2061; D. de Bruyne, Deux lettres inconnues de Theognius: ZNTW 27 1908 107-110; G.
