Arianism (Arrianismo)

Fishburn and Hughes: A heresy founded and promulgated by Arms (280-369). It was based on the denial of the divinity of Jesus, who was claimed not to be consubstantial with God but merely a reflection of him. Story of the Warrior and the Captive Maiden: the Arians converted the Visigoths, the Lombards and the Vandals. The Theologians: several councils of the Church were held to counter Arian beliefs, such as the Council of Nicea in 325, which proclaimed the divinity of Jesus, and the Councils of Constantinople in 381 and 553. The last of these reaffirmed the Nicene creed and pronounced anathemas against the Arians. The Theologians; Story of the Warrior and the Captive Maiden
