This chapter focuses on the social dimensions of the theological controversy in Alexandria, following closely the efforts of rival churchmen to make ordinary Christians their partners in the dispute. It is here, as churchmen interacted with one another and with their congregations, that we begin to see the rise of a new type of church leader—brash, enterprising, and combative.
