Saint Athanasius the Great
  • Εγκώμιον εις τον Άγιον Ανδρέαν τον Απόστολον

    On Patrology/Texts Section:

    St. Athanasius was born in Alexandria, Egypt, in 296. He accompanied Archbishop Alexander as a Deacon to the 1st Ecumenical Council in Nicea in 325. He was renowned for his learning. Athanasios did much to quash Arianism. He suffered much from slander and persecution by heretics during his 40 year tenure as Patriarch of Alexandria. He had to flee for his life several times, hiding in a grave, in a well, private homes and the desert. He considered St. Anthony his spiritual father. He only had peace in his later years as a beloved Bishop. He reposed in the year 373.
