[Top Margin: Athanasius, St : (A.D. 296?-373)] [The greatest defender of the Nicene faith against prolonged attacks by numerous and powerful Arians. To him more than to any other single individual is due the triumph of the Nicene position. As a theologian Athanasius won his spurs before the outbreak of the Arian controversy. His writings are, [Contra ?] Gentiles and De Incarnatione - a single apologetic-dogmatic treatise in two parts.]
