Question: "Who was Athanasius?" Answer: Athanasius’ fight against heresy in the fourth century is a wonderful example of contending for “the faith that was once for all entrusted to God’s holy people” (Jude ). Athanasius was born around AD and lived in Alexandria, Egypt, the chief center of learning of the Roman Empire. St. Athanasius is often shown as a bishop arguing with a pagan, a bishop holding an open book or a bishop standing over a defeated heretic.
