Neo-Chalcedonianism


Show Summary Details

Quick Reference

A modern term coined to describe the position of those 6th-cent. theologians who sought to interpret the Christological teaching of the Council of Chalcedon in the light of the Christology of St Cyril of Alexandria, in order to combat the Monophysite claim that the Council had betrayed Cyril. This position involved an insistence that the one hypostasis of the Incarnate Christ is identical with the Second Person of the Trinity, and a consequent justification of the Theopaschite formula.
