Athanasius of Alexandria
"Athanasius of Alexandria - On Luke 10-22 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 1:3). Athanasius was born around AD 298 and lived in Alexandria, Egypt, the chief center of learning of the Roman Empire. In AD 313 Emperor Constantine’s Edict of Milan changed Christianity from a persecuted religion to an officially sanctioned one. A few years later, Arius of Alexandria, a presbyter, began to teach that, since God begat Jesus, then there was a time when the Son did not exist. In other words, Arius said Jesus was a created being—the first thing created—not the eternal Son of God; Jesus was god-like, but He was not God." from video introduction.
