The ‘orthodox’ view of God when the Arian Controversy began

After Nicaea in 325 AD, a large number of further church councils and decrees followed to find a solution for the disputed and confusing language of the Nicene Creed, culminating in the Homoean creed that was accepted at the Council of Constantinople in AD 360. RPC Hanson stated that no ‘orthodoxy’ existed when the controversy began and that orthodoxy was only created through that controversy, Wedgeworth speaks of Orthodoxy as something that already existed when the Arian Controversy began.
