Handmade Byzantine Icon of the First Holy Ecumenical Council, at Nice of Bithynia.
The First Holy Ecumenical Council took place in 325 AD in Nice in Bithynia with the aim to condemn Arianism and set a universal pattern for calculating the date of Easter.
It was convened by Saint Constantine the Great and about 300 bishops of the Church participated.
The impact of the First Holy Ecumenical Council was great for Christianity and the Church, because it established the Nicene Creed, a text defining state of belief in the Triune God.
The next Ecumenical Council was convened by Theodosius the Great in 381 AD and was held in Constantinople.
