St. Athanasius “the Great” of Alexandria

Liberating Lions

            It feels like writing a piece about a figure to influential as Athanasius in anything less than a full book would fall severely short of doing justice to such an exquisite life. He is designated as one of the four great “Doctors of the Eastern Church” along with St. Basil the Great, St. Gregory of Nazianzus and St. John Chrysotom, and with good reason. Christians today have been the benefactors of his theological brilliance and struggles against the false doctrine of Arianism in the face of a litany of 40 years of tumultuous trials, fighting to uphold the Nicene creed against persecution from ecclesial and political foes which earned him the accolade of “Athanasius contra mundam” – Athanasius against the world.
