Arius's determined opponent was Athanasius, who saw that if the Word were not fully God, then God's act in Christ was not fully a divine act and hence ultimately ineffectual. At the Council of Nicaea in 325, the Athanasian position prevailed. The Son was declared to be "of one Being with the Father" (homoousios) (Nicene Creed, BCP, p. 358). The full divinity of the Son was upheld. See Homoiousios; see Homoousios.
