Blasphemy of Sirmium

Quick Reference

The doctrinal formula issued by the Council of Sirmium (modern Sremska Mitrovica) in 357, setting out the teaching of the extreme Arians. All mention of the term ‘substance’ in Trinitarian speculation was forbidden, and the subordination of the Son to the Father was asserted. It takes its name from St Hilary of Poitiers's description of it.
