Arianism takes its name from Arius, a renegade priest in Egypt in the late 3rd and early 4th century who promoted heretical ideas about the nature of the trinity that were radically different to the beliefs of the Church in Rome. Arianism spread throughout the Empire, especially in the West, where many newly arrived Germanic tribes converted to Arianism and not Roman or Nicene Christianity.
