Eustathius of Antioch was deposed and exiled in Council of Serdica and the ecumenical First Council of Constantinople. The Arian discussions and debates at the council extended from about 20 Maythrough about 19 June. The bishoprics of AlexandriaRomeand Antioch were placed substantially on equal footing.

That provincial arrangement of Roman and Milanese jurisdiction within Italy therefore was a relevant precedent, and provided an administrative solution to the problem facing the council—namely, how to define Alexandrian and Antiochian jurisdiction within the Concklio of Oriens. The sessions continued to deal with minor matters until 25 August. Alexander of Alexandria and Athanasius took the first position; the popular presbyter Ariusfrom whom the term Arianism comes, took the second.

While Constantine had sought a unified church after the council, he did not force the Homoousian view of Christ’s nature on the council see The role of Constantine. Constantine organized the Council along the lines of the Roman Senate. The text of this profession of faith is preserved in a letter of Eusebius to his congregation, in Athanasius, and elsewhere.

The controversy between those who argued for independent computations and those who argued for continued reliance on the Jewish calendar was formally resolved by the Council, which endorsed the independent procedure that had been in use for some time at Rome and Alexandria.

Constantine the Great and Christianity.

On 25 Julyin conclusion, the fathers of the council celebrated the Emperor’s twentieth anniversary. Athanasius eventually spent most of condilio life battling against Arianism.

The long-term effects of the Council of Nicaea were significant.

Arius’s argument was that the Son was God’s very first production, before all ages, the position being that the Son had a beginning, and that only re Father has no beginning. The Arian controversy arose in Alexandria when the cpncilio reinstated presbyter Arius [39] began to spread doctrinal views that were contrary to those of his bishop, St.

Easter was henceforward to be a Sunday in cocnilio lunar month chosen according to Christian criteria—in effect, a Christian Nisan—not in the month of Nisan as defined by Jews. However, Nicene Christianity did not become the state religion of the Roman Empire until the Edict of Thessalonica in The Arians appealed to Scripture, quoting biblical statements such as “the Father is greater than I”, [44] and also that the Son is “firstborn of all creation”.


Christianity was illegal in the empire until the emperors Constantine and Licinius agreed in to what became known as the Edict of Milan. The suppression of the Meletian schism, an early breakaway sect, was another important matter that came before the Council of Nicaea.

In that scenario, a relevant Roman precedent is invoked, answering Loughlin’s argument as to why the custom of a bishop in Rome conxilio have any bearing on a dispute regarding Alexandria in Oriens, and at the same time correcting Schaff’s cnocilio that the bishop of Rome was invoked by way of illustration “with reference to his own diocese.

History of the Catholic Church. In Jerome ‘s Prologue to Judith[79] he claims that the Book of Judith was cohcilio by the Nicene Council to have been counted among the number of the Sacred Scriptures”, which some have suggested means the Nicene Council did discuss what documents would concilil among the sacred scriptures, but more likely simply means the Conciluo used Judith in its deliberations on other matters and so it should be considered canonical.

In spite of his sympathy for Arius, Eusebius of Caesarea adhered to the decisions of the council, accepting the entire creed.

One concolio the projects undertaken by the Council was the creation of a Creed, a declaration niveia summary of the Christian faith. Its main accomplishments were settlement of the Christological issue of the divine nature of God the Son and his relationship to God the Father[2] the construction of the first part of the Nicene Creedestablishing uniform observance of the date of Easter[6] and promulgation of early canon law.

Arians and Meletians soon regained nearly all of the rights they had lost, and consequently, Arianism continued to spread and be a subject of debate within the Church during the remainder of the fourth century. These two rules, independence of the Jewish calendar and worldwide uniformity, were the only rules for Easter explicitly laid down by the Council. They insisted that such a view was in contravention of such Scriptures as “I and the Father are one” [47] and “the Word was God”, [48] as such verses were interpreted.

This was the first general council in the history of the Church summoned by emperor Constantine I. Unsourced material may be challenged and removed.

In support of this, they cite the position of early fathers and their expression of the need for all churches to agree with Rome see Irenaeus, Adversus Haereses III: Athanasius of Alexandria, a young deacon and companion of Bishop Alexander of Alexandria, was among the assistants. Also for the first time, the Emperor played a role, by calling together the bishops under his authority, and using the power of the state to give the council’s orders effect.


The opposing view stemmed from the idea that begetting the Son is itself in the nature of the Father, which is eternal.

The Emperor carried out his earlier statement: Loughlin, there is an alternate Roman Catholic interpretation. Some distinctive elements in the Nicene Creedperhaps from the hand of Hosius of Cordova, were added, some specifically to counter the Arian point of view.

In the short-term, however, the council did not completely solve the problems it was convened to discuss and a period of conflict and upheaval continued for some time. The Creed was amended to a new version by the First Council of Constantinople in Part of a series on.

No historical evidence points to involvement on his part in selecting or omitting books for inclusion in commissioned Bibles.

Arius emphasized the supremacy and uniqueness of God the Father, meaning that the Father alone is almighty and infinite, and that therefore the Father’s divinity must be greater than the Son’s.

Thus, said the Arians, only the Son was directly created and begotten of God; and therefore there was a time that He had no existence. They declared, as did Athanasius, [49] that the Son had no beginning, but had an “eternal derivation” from the Father, and ds was coeternal with him, and equal to God in all aspects.

The Meletians ultimately died out around the middle of the fifth century.
