This chapter investigates the interactions between Theodoret of Cyrrhus and his doctrinal allies during the period from 423 to 451 B.C. It describes the ways in which clerics signalled social attachments through words and nonverbal practices and suggests that Theodoret and his clerical associates shared a consistent set of social cues. It argues that these key set of phrases and gestures can be considered as idioms of an Antiochene network.

Keywords: Theodoret of Cyrrhus; interactions; doctrinal allies; social attachments; nonverbal practices; social cues; Antiochene network
