    Abstract

    If gent, and inc. are a catechetical work, as Petterson says, they offer a catechesis tailor-made for a community in which Arian instruction might also be available. Athanasius may be trying to replace earlier catechetical treatises which were not proof against Arian manipulation with new ones which were. Then not 'the scarcity of books at the time'10 but the lack of books containing a prophylactic against Arian teaching would have led to the writing of our two treatises, and the much-discussed reference in gent. 1 to not having his teachers' books at hand would be merely a graceful excuse for his writing the books which he was determined to write anyway
