Removal of Category:Egyptian saints[edit]

I see nothing in the text indicating that the subject is venerated as a saint by any Christian church. Until that evidence is put forward, I believe it appropriate to remove the category above. John Carter 15:16, 1 June 2007 (UTC)

He was not considered for Canonization as in the article it says he signed to accept the Arians in union, so he could go back home. Don't be too hard on him, as he was ninty+ years of age!

Request for Comment[edit]

On the main page Hosius with Saint Athanasius went to this Council, The Council of Sardica, which had been summoned by The Pontiff, Saint Julius 1, and did what was requested of it, 343. This is referred to as a "fruitless council". All the evidence is to the contrary. I request this comment be removed. It is made in the wrong place, as well. Also criticises the Council and Hosius for not having recognision for Arius. This is not History but opinion and has no place on the main page. I request, therefore, that this whole page be rewritten, from top to bottom.

This page has been revived, I see, and well done.

Presiding at the council of Nicaea[edit]

The clause "that he presided is a very doubtful assertion" in reference to the council of Nicaea is unreferenced. Lewis Ayres, in his book Nicaea and its Legacy says that Ossius probably chaired the meeting, though he himself provides no evidence for this. Given that Ayres is a preeminent scholar in this area, I suggest "very doubtful" be removed from the article, or that Ossius chaired the meeting be considered equally likely as unlikely.
