Our venerable father '''''The [[Seventh Ecumenical CouncilPachomius the Great]]''''' took place in Nicaea in 787 AD(c. 292-346 A.D.) was an early Egyptian ascetic, both a [[Desert Fathers|Desert Father]] and is also known as the '''Second Council a founder of Nicaea.''' This [[Ecumenical Councils|Ecumenical Councilcenobitic]] dealt with the [[iconmonasticism]]sin Egypt. Pachomius was born to pagan parents in Thebaid (Upper Egypt), receiving an excellent secular education and having a good character from his youth. During his time in the Roman army, he stayed in a prison that was used to house the new conscripts, run by Christians. He was so impressed by their love of their neighbor that he vowed to become a Christian after his military service ended.
The controversy that this Council addressed Thus in 314 Pachomius was more than [[baptism|baptized]] and began to practice the ascetic life. Three years later he withdrew to the desert under the guidance of the elder Palamon. According to tradition, after ten years with Palamon he heard a struggle over different views Voice telling him to found a monastic community at Tabbenisi. He and Palamon traveled there, and subsequently Pachomius had a vision in which an angel came to him, clothed in a schema (a type of Christian art. Deeper issues were involvedmonastic garment), and it gave him a rule for the cenobitic life. This is these significant because up until this time ascetics had for the Council addressed: The character of Christmost part lived alone as hermits, not together in a community. Pachomius's human nature; rule balanced the communal life with the Christian attitude toward mattersolitary life; and monks live in individual cells but work together for the true meaning of Christian redemption and the salvation of the entire material universecommon good.
