Saint Hilary of Poitiers by Bennett Molinari and Richard Molinari Saint Hilary was born in the city of Poitiers, France around the year 300. His parents were pagan, and ap- pear to have been nobles, allowing Hillary to receive a good education, his studies ranged over the spectrum of learning of his age. In his study of Holy Scripture, Hillary who was brought up as a pagan in a pagan house- hold, found the truth he was searching for, he renounced paganism and was baptized a Christian. It was about the year 350, as a result of his strong faith and learning, Hilary was cho- sen to be the bishop of Poitiers. He was soon taken up with battling what be- came the scourge of the fourth century, Arianism, which denied the divinity of Christ. It was the writings of an Alexandrian priest, Arius {c.250-336) who argued against the Divinity of Christ that sparked the Arian heresy and provided the reason for the Council of Nicea (325 AD) to discuss and debate the issue of how best to express the mystery of Christ's person and His relationship to God the Father. Hillary became very in- volved with rebuffing the ad- vances of the Arian heresy which was growing in strength at this time. Hillary staunchly defended Christ's Divinity and at the Council of Seleucia in 360 defended the decrees of Nicea in which the Church more fully explained and clarified its belief about the three per- sons of the Trinity and their relation to one another. The Council of Seleucia con- demned the views of Arius. The Bishop of Aries, France, an active believer in Arianism, convened a coun- cil at Bdziers in 356 with the intention of justifying him- self and further establishing Arianism. Saint Hilary cou- rageously opposed Arianism at the council but the coun- cil, composed for the most part of Arians, refused to hear him. Hilary was de- nounced to the Emperor Constantius, who was sym- pathetic to Arianism and was exiled to Phrygia. During his exile he gave himself up to study, com- pleted certain of his works which he had begun, and wrote his treatise on the syn- ods. Emperor Constantius died in 361 ending the per- secution of the Christians who opposed Arianism. Hfllary finally was allowed to return to his home in Poitiers where he passed away in the year 368. Saint Hilary's feast day is celebrated on Janu- ary 13. He was declared a Doctor of the Church in 1851 by Pope Pius IX. Please accept sincere condolences, from the Spinelli's family and staff.
