Episode 112: The Council of Nicaea and Its Creed with Lincoln H. Blumell

Lincoln Blumell researches Christianity in the Roman and Byzantine periods with a special emphasis on Christianity in Egypt, Greek, and Coptic papyrology and epigraphy (that’s reading and writing), with degrees from Oxford and the University of Toronto.

But in addition to his complex research endeavors, he is also an educator. And it is in this role that he sat down with me to discuss his work to reframe and augment Latter-day Saint knowledge of New Testament peoples and early Christianity.

Join me as we discuss one of the most misunderstood and formative events in the early Christian period and also a new resource Blumell edited to help members better understand New Testament writings.
