Alexander was the Bishop of Alexandria who first opposed Arius and continued to oppose him and his teaching until his death. His cause was then carried by the more famous Athanasius. According to Epiphanius, Alexander wrote 70 letters to bishops all over the empire, combating Arianism. These were still preserved in Epiphanius’s day (though its unclear whether Epiphanius had seen them or just knew of them, see Against Heresies 69.4).
This chart includes the correspondance to and from Alexander as well as two sermons of unknown date. The date is taken from Opitz. Most of these documents are included in the list of Documents of the Early Arian Controversy.
