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. [VICTORINUS.]
