La politique religieuse de Valentinien Ier et de Valens : eune alternative au modèle constantinien ?

Abstract : Valentinian and Valens work out their religious policy in a disturbed context, soon after the theological quarrels of the reign of Constantius and the pagan reaction of Julian. These novi homines conduct distinct but concerted religious policies whose originality did not always appear in modern historiography, mainly fideist and influenced by Ammianus Marcellinus and the Nicene historians. Towards Pagans, the two brothers break with the hostile policy of the Constantinian emperors. In the East, the policy of Valens towards Christians subtly diverges of that followed by Constantius and remains for a long time of a great moderation. In Occident, Valentinian breaks with the policy of Constantius. He keeps a respectful but distant attitude towards the Church, and he refuses to take sides in the religious quarrels. Thus, their religious policies, especially Valentinian's, are very original and outline the model of an alternative Christian empire
