The Nicene Creed was one of the earliest dogmatic formulations of Christianity. Formulated by the Council of Nicaea in 325, it was intended to combat the heresy of Arianism that denies the divinity of Christ.
The dogmatic formulations brought unity among Christians then and now. Dogmas are not meant to be followed blindly as some would otherwise charge, but it was intended to establish the doctrinal truth of the faith to be learned. The duty of every Christian is not just to believe but to learn and understand their faith, for no matter how pious a Christian may be, he is not totally free from temptations and mistakes that may lead him to lose the way.
Deum de Deo, lumen de lúmine, Deum verum de Deo vero, génitum, non factum,
“God from God, Light from Light, True God from True God, begotten not made.”
In this work, I presented the Nicene Creed in an installation that is illumined by light. Each letter assembled like puzzles forms the words of the first lines of the creed.
