Beschreibungen
The most influential credal product of the fourth century was the formula which is sometimes technically called the Niceno-Constantinopolitan creed. Ordinary Christians are familiar with it as the creed of the Holy Eucharist, where it is misnamed the Nicene creed. Its hybrid title combines the popular but erroneous tradition that the occasion of its enlargement was the second general council, held at Constantinople in 381. The Reformation reaffirmed its binding character and gave it a new lease of life and an extended currency by translating it into the vernacular tongues. Aetius, the archdeacon of the capital city, immediately got up and recited the creed from a written document. It is one of the few threads by which the tattered fragments of the divided robe of Christendom are held together. The universal tradition dating at least from the time of the council of Chalcedon, is that C was the creed ratified by the 150 bishops who formed the council of Constantinople.
