an Arian who flourished about the middle of the fourth century.
He was the author of a tract De Generatione Divina
, addressed to his friend Marius Victorinus, who wrote in reply De Generatione Verbi Divini sive Confutatorium Candidi Ariani ad eundem
Mabillon published in his Analecta (Paris, 1685, fol.) a "Fragmentum Epistolae Candidi Ariani ad Marium Victorinum," which Oudin first pointed out to be in reality a portion of the "De Generatione Divina." Both are printed in the Bibliotheca Patrum of Galland, vol. viii.
