HISTORY of Christian Theology

An extension of Logos subordinational theology advocated by Arius, a 4th century priest in Alexandrian, which asserted that Christ was simply a creation of God the Father and that “there was once when he [Chirst] was not.” This created a major controversy in the early Church culminating in this doctrine being condemned by the Council of Nicaea. Prior to the Council of Nicaea Arianism and semi-Arianism was the majority view of the bishops and continued to be the predominate belief of Christians outside of the territory ruled by the Roman Empire, particularly in Germanic areas, until the Middle Ages. (See Arianism.)
