=================================

The Aryan race was a racial grouping commonly used in the period of the late 19th century to the mid 20th century to describe peoples of European and Western Asian heritage. It derives from the idea that the original speakers of the Indo-European languages and their descendants up to the present day constitute a distinctive race or subrace of the larger Caucasian race.

==================================
Arianism is the theological teaching attributed to Arius (c. AD 250–336), a Christian presbyter in Alexandria, Egypt, concerning the relationship of God the Father to the Son of God, Jesus Christ. Arius asserted that the Son of God was a subordinate entity to God the Father. Deemed a heretic by the Ecumenical First Council of Nicaea of 325, Arius was later exonerated in 335 at the regional First Synod of Tyre, and then, after his death, pronounced a heretic again at the Ecumenical First Council of Constantinople of 381.
The Roman Emperors Constantius II (337–361) and Valens (364–378) were Arians or Semi-Arians.

=================================
Lol. "Semi-Arians"?? Even back then there were the wordmeisters lawyers, parsing every syllable.

And did the Semi-Arians become seminarians?

But in seriousness, this would be a good time to include all who follow Jesus, i.e. the Protestants too.

Genoa, good catch on Aryans vice Arians
