One of the earliest protesters in Christianity was Arius (256-336 CE), the fourth century priest in Alexandria, Egypt. He believed that God the Father created the universe through the divinely created Christ, but that Jesus was a creature. Athanasius, the Bishop of Alexandria disagreed. The Roman Emperor Constantine called a general council at Nicaea in 325 to settle this dispute. The result was the definition that Christ was the Son of the Father begotten of the same substance – homousious. Jesus was truly divine.
