Saint Macarius of Jerusalem
San Macario was Bishop of Jerusalem from 313 to 334.
In reality at the time of San Macario Jerusalem no longer existed, in its place stood Aelia Capitolina, the city that was built on the ruins of the 2nd Temple of Jerusalem, with its Capitol located on the site of the burial of Jesus.
San Macario lived in the period of Constantinian peace, when the Church was transformed from an illicit religion into an imperial Catholic Church.
Emperor Constantine gave Macario permission to tear down the Capitol to bring to light the Calvary and Sepulcher area, where the Basilica of the Holy Sepulcher or Basilica of the Resurrection will then be built.
Moreover Macario opposed the Aryan doctrine, and intervened in May 325 at the Council of Nicaea.
It is believed that Bishop Macario was one of the authors of the Nicene Symbol, that is, of the Creed that we still pronounce today.
