Arius (AD 256 - 336) was an early Christian theologian of Libyan descent, born in Antioch. He was described by Epiphanius as "tall, grave, and winning" [1].

Arius taught that the Son of God was not eternal, and was subordinate to God the Father (a view known generally as Arianism). Although he attracted considerable support at the time, Arius' views were deemed heretical at the First Council of Nicaea, leading to the formation of the Nicene Creed.
