Salaminius Hermias Sozomen

Famous historian of the early Church. Born in Bethelia, Palestine; died c.447. His history (323-439), a continuation of the work of Eusebius, suffers in comparison with that of Socrates, appearing at the same time. It is valuable, however, for its information concerning monasticism, and early missionary activities among the Arians, Armenians, and Goths.
