Greek and latin paralleltext. Didymus the Blind from Alexandria (c. 310-395) is one of the Greek fathers. He was a learned student of Origen and an ascetic, blind since the age of four, and one of the principal opponents of Arianism. In 553 the Second Council of Constantinople however condemned his works, along with those of Origen and Evagrius, and many of his works were therefore not copied during the Middle Ages and subsequently lost. The "De trinitate" was also considered lost when Johannes Aloysius Mingarellius found a MSS of it. This is the first printing both of the original Greek text and of the Latin translation by Mingarellli, who also added a life of Didymus.
