The third and 4th centuries literally changed the world forever giving
rise to the Christian West. Award winning Director Jamil Dehlavi was
recently quoted as follows "...A great storm passed across the face of
the ancient world long ago, and that world changed forever in its
aftermath. The vortex of that tempest was...NICAEA".
the Nicene Creed was not not established by Constantine but was in fact the recognition and codefication in a conscise and clear fashion of all of the belifes of the early Christian Fathers.Nothing was invented all was affirmed.It is interesting to note that an epic film is being perpared ( actually envisioned as a trilogy) entitled "NICAEA" to be shot at the Cinecitta Studios in Rome and to be directed by Jamil Dehlavi.An incredible team of professionals including many from the highly successful Gibson movie "The Passion of the Christ".The effort is spearheaded by Floridian Charles Parlato who calls it the first movie about a question "Who do you say I am".So interestingly enough here we are roughly 1700 years after the 1st Council of Nicaea, once again addressing the most important question ever asked of humanity concerning the "divinity" of Jesus Christ of Nazareth.The answer to this question 1700 years ago was the affirmation "You are the Son of the Living God" and that fact gave rise to the most powerful and creative force ever seen "The Christian West".Parlato's movie should be interesting to say the least and I dare say I think there is a battle brewing where "NICAEA THE MOVIE" is set to do battle with "The DaVinci Code". I can not wait and it hould be more than interesting the website of the movie is www.nicaeathemovie.com.
