council ratifying the work of the Council of Nicea I (325).
This council reaffirmed
the decision of the Council of Nicea I (325) which
taught that Christ was of the same substance (homoousios)
as the Father. Apollinarianism was condemned
and the humanity and divinity of Christ were correspondingly asserted. The
so-called Nicene Creed stems from this council
but was expanded and approved later.
