Saint Athanasius, Bishop of Alexandria and Doctor of the Church, assisted at the Council of Nicaea, where the Nicene Creed was established. Under the care of St. Alexander the Patriarch he received a classical education and succeeded him as Bishop in 326. His life struggle was correcting Arianism, the heresy denying the divinity of Christ, to the effect that 47 years of his Episcopate were lived in exile as his life was frequently in danger. St. Athanasius is a “Champion of Orthodoxy” who fully lived his life as Bishop, caring for his flock even in exile.
