In 353, Constantius II assembled a conciliabulum (an assembly of bishops) at Arles and condemned Athanasius the Patriarch (archbishop) of Alexandria. Athanasius struggled against the Emperors Constantine, Constantius II, Julian the Apostate and Valens. He was known as "Athanasius Contra Mundum" (Athanasius Against the World). Nonetheless, within a few years of his death, St. Gregory of Nazianzus called him the "Pillar of the Church." His writings have been well regarded by all Church fathers who followed, in both the West and the East. Athanasius is counted as one of the four great Eastern Doctors of the Church in the Roman Catholic Church. In Eastern Orthodoxy, he is labeled the "Father of Orthodoxy." Some Protestants label him "Father of The Canon." Athanasius is venerated as a saint by the Roman Catholic Church, Oriental and Eastern Orthodox churches, the Lutherans, and the Anglican Communion.
