#341 – A History of the Catholic Church – The Presbyter Of Alexandria

The presbyter Arius and his bishop Alexander enter into a theological dispute regarding the relationship between the Father and the Son, whether the Son is divine or instead a creature. This is a dispute that comes to involve not only the Christians of Alexandria, but Christians throughout Egypt and Libya.
