The Christological and Trinitarian debates from Nicaea I in 325 to Chalcedon in 451 still impact today’s churches.

The debates were primarily in response to heretical teachings.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
