This Day in History: 0325-05-20


An ecumenical council was inaugurated by Emperor Constantine in Nicea, Asia Minor, the primary aim of which was to do away with the distortions that had crept into Christian teachings. The Church Council of Nicaea in Asia Minor condemned the teaching of Arius, a Christian priest at Alexandria, who held that Christ was not divine in the same sense as God the Father. The council fixed Orthodox Easter as the first Sunday after the first full moon following the vernal equinox unless the date falls on the 1st day of Passover, in which case it moves to the next Sunday.
