"NOTE.—Although it has been generally, and almost tacitly, assumed, since the publication of Waitz's MS., that the 'irreligiosus et sacrilegus judex,' by whom Ulfilas was persecuted and forced to quit the country of the Wisigoths in 348 (355 according to Waitz's own chronology), was no other than Athanaric, yet it must be pointed out that there is no direct evidence for the identification; in fact, the evidence in this case is no more complete than that which connects Ulfilas with the 'presbyter Christiani ritus' of the negotiations before the battle of Adrianople." (Ulfilas, Apostle of the Goths, Scott, 1885)
