About the St. Athanasius of Alexandria
St. Athanasius (ca. AD 296–373) was the twentieth bishop of Alexandria. Also known as Athanasius the Great, he is considered an elite Christian theologian. Author of two of Christianity’s most celebrated classics, On the Incarnation and The Life of St. Antony, Athanasius a leading proponent of Nicene orthodoxy, and a noted leader of the Egyptian church in the fourth century. Highly regarded by all Christian traditions, he is commonly referred to as the “Father of Orthodoxy” or the “Father of the Canon.” His influence is defined by his defense of the Nicene Creed and his conflict with Arianism—a theological conflict which sent him into exile multiple times, and which he spent the majority of his life fighting.
