Icon depicting the Emperor Constantine and the bishops of the First Council of Nicaea (325)

In this series examining the Christian theological tradition, we look at the four ecumenical councils of the Church, as they sought to articulate orthodox Christian belief.

Today we begin our study of the first four ecumenical councils, starting with the First Council of Nicaea in A.D. 325. The importance of this council cannot be overstated: attended by hundreds of bishops, it addressed foundational issues, particularly the divinity of Jesus, and resulted in the first version of what became the Nicene Creed. Next week, we turn to the First Council of Constantinople (A.D. 381), which finalized the creed (mostly).
