Athanasius of Alexandria

a.k.a. St. Athanasius

Author Code: CSAA

Born: c. 297 A.D. - Alexandria, Egypt

Died: May 2, 373 A.D. - Alexandria, Egypt

Thought to have received a secular education in Alexandria, Athanasius obviously was versed in Greek as well as Latin. The fact that he used Coptic in many of his writings would imply that he was of Egyptian lineage rather than Greek. As a young man Athanasius came under the influence of St. Anthony the Hermit in Alexandria. He attended the Council of Nicaea in 325 AD and in 328, became Bishop of Alexandria. For most of his life, Athanasius was engaged in theological and political struggles against Arianism and the emperor Constantine and his successors, which resulted in him being banished from Alexandria on several occasions. He became known as the "Father of Orthodoxy". He wrote a number of important theological works including The Life of St. Anthony, Four Orations Against the Arians, Against the Heathens, On the Incarnation and Letters to Serapion.
