Quotes about the Council of Nicea from early Christian history and modern historians. I'm not sure it was a good idea to even make this page. I have many quotes and explanations on the Nicea pages.
The study I put into these articles has resulted in a book called Decoding Nicea. Often reviewed as "interesting," it tells the story of Nicea in more detail than is possible here. Available wherever books are sold. See Amazon reviews.
How did the bishops gathered at Nicea interpret this creed which they had just adopted and which would eventually become the creed of the universal church? It is difficult to know, and one can well imagine that those who assented to this formula interpreted it in different ways, according to their own theological traditions. (A History of Christian Thought. Volume 1: From the Beginnings to the Council of Chalcedon. p. 268. Abingdon Press. Kindle Edition.)
The vast majority of bishops were more afraid of Sabellianism than of Arianism. (ibid. p. 270)
I support Heaven's Family. I urge you to help reach the world and meet the needs of "the least of these" by supporting them as well.
