Who wrote the Nicene Creed? Why did the estimated 300 bishops present at the Council of Nicaea use terms such as “Light of Light... consubstantial... proceeding...” and more to describe God? Is the creed even intelligible to us today in the same sense its early proponents understood it? Does the Nicene Creed have anything constructive to contribute to our context today, to those disillusioned with traditional forms of religion, or those merely interested in spirituality? In Passages: Nicaea, Joshua Heavin and Caleb Wait give an overview of the Council of Nicaea while grappling with its caricatures and criticisms.
