The Life and Works of Potamius of Lisbon.
Classical Review, 55.
Potamius of Lisbon is hardly one of the more celebrated churchmen of the fourth century AD. His life is shrouded in obscurity: we do not know when he was born, when he became bishop, or when he died. He emerges into the light of history in the mid-350s when, during the western residence of the âArianâ emperor Constantius II, many bishops were called upon to adhere to the emperorâs preferred version of Christian orthodoxy â a version that would later be denounced as heresy after the triumph of Nicene Christology at the Council of Constantinople in 381. Potamiusâ actions during this period are instructive.
