Description
 
This is the story of the great "Father of Orthodoxy" who was the man chosen by God to uphold the true faith in a time of crisis, and to pass on to us the Catholic teaching that Christ is truly God.

"Athanasius! Give us Athanasius!" The Bishops knew of no one better fitted for the office. Thus began the long and exciting episcopate of St.Athanasius, Bishop and Patriarch of Alexandria, Egypt. A counselor to his bishop at the Council of Nicea in 325, his own tenure would include conflicts with Roman Emperors, strange and false accusations from the Arian heretics, exile from his diocese no less than five separate times, hairsbreadth escapes from his enemies, and secret visits to his faithful people. The famous Athanaisian Creed is named after this Church Father - plus, the writing of the life of St. Antony of the Desert, his good friend and the Father of Monasticism - both east and West.
