The Monumental ‘First Council Of Nicaea’ Came To An End This Day 1,692-Years Ago! August 25, 325.
To say that this First Council of Nicaea was historic would be somewhat of an understatement. It was kind of pivotal to the growth of Christianity as the dominating World religion.
It was the council that came up with the original version of the, “We believe in one God, the Father Almighty, Maker of all things visible and invisible …“, Nicene Creed.
It came up with 20 new canons — the first to have been promulgated by such a council.
The first of these, i.e., Canon #1, was a prohibited priests and monks from self-castrating themselves! I kid you NOT. Look it up.
