Death of Gratian. - Ruin of Arianism. - St. Ambrose. - First Civil War, against Maximus. - Character, Administration, and Penance of Theodosius. - Death of Valentinian II. - Second Civil War, Against Eugenius. - Death of Theodosius.
The fame of Gratian, before he had accomplished the twentieth year of his age, was equal to that of the most celebrated princes. His gentle and amiable disposition endeared him to his private friends, the graceful affability of his manners engaged the affection of the people: the men of letters, who enjoyed the liberality, acknowledged the taste and eloquence, of their sovereign; his valor and dexterity in arms were equally applauded by the soldiers; and the clergy considered the humble piety of Gratian as the first and most useful of his virtues.
