The Arian Controversy

The Arian Controversy

The Arian controversy in the early fourth century divided Christians in the Roman Empire. Arius, a priest from Alexandria, claimed that because Jesus was "begotten", he was a lesser divinity than God. However, Athanasius, an Alexandrian theologian, claimed Jesus was God incarnate.

In AD 325, at the Council of Nicea, a group of theologians gathered by Emperor Constantine and rejected the views of Arius. However, Christians continued to be divided on this subject for over a century.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
