The Arian controversy continues to rage in the is episode. The Popes of Rome are caught in a roiling theological battle over not only the nature of Jesus Christ in the trinity, but also how the secular Roman State and Christianity would interact and relate to each other. The Pope of Rome Liberius would be banished for his beliefs, but then possibly return because he capitulated on those beliefs. The politics of Christianity and the Roman Empire are going to become their own character in this story.

Anthony of Egypt is referred to as the Father of Christian Monasticism. We’ll take a closer look to see if this title is appropriate or if it was a marketing device used by the powerful Patriarch of Alexandria, Athanasius. Monks and monasteries will be incredibly important to the development of Christianity in both the west and the east. The monastic orders will produce many Popes of Rome and other of the highest level of Patriarchs.

This is the first episode in a new series on the Arian Century. For the next century and a half, it appeared that the Arian theological position was going to win the day and become the ultimate form of Christianity in the Roman Empire. We’ll first take a look at the time right after the Council of Nicaea and how the situation developed now that secular and religious politics were becoming completely intertwined. We’ll also see how one important Pope named Julius would insert another key piece into the puzzle of Roman papal authority.

The First Ecumenical Council, or world-wide synod, which took place at Nicaea in modern day Turkey, involved many of the biggest names of the day and really turned the Roman world on its head. Christianity, which was a heavily persecuted religion, became the preferred religion of the Empire all in the course of a few short years. The foundations of Christianity needed to be solidified though if  it was to become the unifying force in the Roman Empire.

In this episode we’ll finish discussing the canons of the First Ecumenical Council at Nicaea in 325AD. We’ll be looking at how the bishops at the Council decided to treat the Christians who lapsed in their faith during the various persecutions and how people from groups deemed heretical should be accepted into the newly minted Orthodox Catholic Church.

The canons of the First Ecumenical Council at Nicaea were extremely important for the history of Christianity. These canons each come with a story of their own that ties together the past and future of the religion. We will continue to discuss the canons that concerned the clergy and the various ways these canons have been interpreted throughout history. The texts of the canons are important, but the way they have been interpreted is just as important.

The first ecumenical council, the First Council of Nicaea in 325AD, was a pivotal moment in Christianity. Once the Creed of Nicaea was defined, the bishops at the Council had a number of important issues they needed deal with. The bishops at the council created twenty canons, or rules of faith that created the guidelines the clergy and the laity would follow going forward. All this was done under the watchful eye of the Emperor Constantine.
