What was Eusebius branded as for his unorthodox beliefs prior to the council of Nicea?
You might try some of these sites:
In the book, "The Building of Christendom," Warren Carroll describes it this way:
"Some 22 of the bishops at the council, led by Eusebius of Nicomedia, came as supporters of Arius. But when some of the more shocking passages from his writings were read, they were almost universally seen as blasphemous."
Read more about Arius if you want a better explanation. :)
