Book description

Every Sunday, Christians all over the world recite the Nicene Creed as a confession of faith. While most do not know the details of the controversy that led to its composition, they are aware that the Council of Nicaea was a critical moment in the history of Christianity. For scholars, the Council has long been a subject of multi-disciplinary interest and continues to fascinate and inspire research. As we approach the 1700th anniversary of the Council, The Cambridge Companion to the Council of Nicaea provides an opportunity to revisit and reflect on old discussions, propose new approaches and interpretative frameworks, and ultimately revitalize a conversation that remains as important now as it was in the fourth century. The volume offers fifteen original studies by scholars who each examine an aspect of the Council. Informed by interdisciplinary approaches, the essays demonstrate its profound legacy with fresh, sometimes provocative, but always intellectually rich ideas.

Reviews

‘This volume is well worth reading. To those new to the trinitarian debates of the fourth century it offers an up-to-date introduction to the most important aspects of the Council of Nicaea and its lasting legacy. Hardened veterans in the field are also guaranteed to find something new and provocative in the diverse and stimulating chapters of this excellent Cambridge Companion.’

Karl Heiner Dahm Source: The Classical Review

‘… a rich selection … The Companion to the Council of Nicaea provokes further thought about its subject as well as interest in the facets on offer here; and that, I hope, will be a sign that it has achieved its purpose.’
