Athanasius and the Nicene Creed is the epic story of Bishop Athanasius of Alexandria and his fight for the Nicene Creed. The story is not a pretty one, and the result was permanent divisions of the Christian world and relationships between church and state that persist to this day. The battle was the Nicene Creed against Arianism, named after Arius, the priest who began the controversy.
