Hilary of Poitiers, Conflicts of Conscience and Law in the Fourth-century Church: "Against Valens and Ursacius", the Extant Fragments, Together with His "Letter to the Emperor Constantius"
Liverpool University Press, 1997 - Religion - 128 pages
Two texts are presented in English translation here. The first is what remains of a historical work Hilary wrote against two distinguished contemporary bishops, Valens and Ursacius, whose intervention on behalf of the Emperor Constantius Hilary thought disastrous. They throw a flood of light upon scenes of disarray, violence and betrayal in the Church life of the fourth century.
