What was one principal object in calling this council?

Answer

"The question relating to the observance of Easter, which was agitated in the time of Anicetus and
Polycarp, and afterward in that of Victor, was still undecided. It was one of the principal reasons for
convoking the Council of Nice, being the most important subject to be considered after the Arian
controversy."
"It appears that the churches of Syria and Mesopotamia continued to follow the, custom of the
Jews, and celebrated Easter on the fourteenth day of the moon, whether falling on Sunday or not. All the
other churches observed that solemnity on Sunday only, namely; those of Rome, Italy, Africa, Lydia,
Egypt, Spain, Gaul, and Britain; and all Greece, Asia, and Pontus." - Boyle's 'Historical View of the
Council of Nice," page 23, edition 1836.
