Until now the period following the Council of Nicea has remained a dark age of early Christian history. This is partly due to the fact that Eusebius' last and important works, "Contra Marcellum" and "De Ecclesiastica Theologia," have not sufficiently been studied. Comparatively little interest has also been given to the Pseudo-Athanasian text "Contra Arianos IV," Careful study and comparison of these works against the background of the post-Nicene debate between Asterius, Marcellus, Eusebius and Photinus, has revealed that (as A. Stegmann already proposed in 1917) "Contra Arianos IV" was written in about 340 and formed a Nicene critique of Marcellus, his pupil and opponents. Therefore, Stegmann's suggestion of the authorship of Apolinarius of Laodicea needs further investigation. This study on "Contra Arianos IV" sheds new light on the years between Nicea and the synods of Rome and Antioch (340/341).
