I've been reading up a bit on the history of the Church, and it was a
lot earlier than 800 that that was decided by the Catholic Church. 
The first council of Nicea was 325, for example.


As you say, there has been more than a little disagreement, both then
and now, and skimming the above page (and subsidiary pages), the issue
is rather confused, as one might well expect.

But the Catholic Church and most mainstream Christians follow the
Nicene Creed, which states outright that Jesus was "true God from true
God".  Which is... well, best not get into theological arguments here.
