25 August 16

Today's Trinity knot celebrates the ending of the Council of Nicaea, on this date in 325 CE, with the adoption of the "Nicene Creed" that established the doctrine of the Trinity. I first became acquainted with the Creed as a child, through attending rehearsals of the Bach Choir of Bethlehem (PA) as they sang Bach's choral masterpiece Mass in B Minor. The melodies and counterpoint of the Credo section have stuck with me ever since.
