Athanasius contra mundum. Not that everyone was against him, but he did have enemies enough, was condemned by bishops, persecuted by emperors, and at least four times was exiled from his world. He would have made an ideal blogger. “He was endowed with a sense of humour that could be as mordant — we had almost said as sardonic — as it seems to have been spontaneous and unfailing; and his courage was of the sort that never falters, even in the most disheartening hour of defeat” (Catholic Encyclopedia).

People today no longer make culture but merely careers. In this they are not entirely blameless. Lord, lay not this sin to their charge (Acts, 7:60).
