Chapter 5 follows the dispute as it migrated outside of Egypt and engaged church leaders elsewhere in the East. It argues that the same processes at work in Alexandria fueled the expansion of the conflict in other communities: the same devotion to precise theologies of the Son and the same urgency to instruct the people. And as church leaders discovered that popular support helped them validate their claims of orthodoxy, the escalation of the conflict became inevitable and compromise even harder to attain.
