Description Gainas, the Goth and Roman commander, represented at the turn of the 4th and 5th century very important person in the development of politics at the Constantinopolitan court. Except his part in political and historical events of the Roman Empire, this representant of Gothic nation reveals to us the glimpses regarding a religious position and perception of the Arian Goths, who at this time under the federate treaty were settled in the provinces of the Empire. Thanks to the Nicene authors and representants of the Church we are able to reconstruct how the religious matters were important for the Gothic-roman commander and how he wanted to secure better position for his followers.
