Council of Nicea Quotes

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.

Taking Aim at Rome's Audacious Claim is coming in September, but you could read one of our other books while you wait. Our new books and author page is up at RebuildingtheFoundations.org.

The study I put into these articles has resulted in a book called Decoding Nicea. It is available at Amazon and most other online bookstores. It can also be ordered at your favorite brick-and-mortar bookstores. If you like what is on these "Nicea" pages, the book goes into more detail.

Justo Gonzalez, 1987

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)
