Maximinus, Arian bp. of Hippo Regius
Maximinus (6), Arian bp. of Hippo Regius, who came with the
Gothic soldiers into Africa a.d.
427, 428, and held a discussion with St. Augustine on the Trinity.
Augustine, later, replied in 2 books, which, with that which contains
the discussion, exhibit the arguments for and against the Arian
doctrine. The line of argument taken by Augustine resembles so strongly
that expressed in our Athanasian creed that if this were lost it might
almost be supplied from this treatise. August. Coll. cum Max.
and Contra Max. i. ii. Opp. vol. viii. pp. 719–819,
ed. Migne; Vit. Poss. 17; Ceillier, vol. ix. 359–361.
