The "Nicene Formula" section is misleading. One could infer from it that the council itself gave us the detailed formula involving March 20 and the EFM based on the 19-year lunar cycle. This is simply not true. These details were hashed out in the two centuries following the council. They constitute how the Church came to operationalize the council's decision that Pascha was to be observed on the Sunday following the full moon on or after the vernal equinox. But these details did not come from the council itself.--BALawrence 01:08, June 4, 2008 (UTC)
