This chapter traces the Antiochene coalition in which Andreas of Samosata and Theodoret of Cyrrhus were embedded. It maps Theodoret's doctrinal network and the maps reveal the demographics of the network and its modular and scale-free form. The findings indicate that though mere statistics and comparisons cannot tell us how this network developed, they do suggest ways to interpret the patterns we see in a diachronic reading of the sources.

Keywords: Antiochene coalition; Andreas of Samosata; Theodoret of Cyrrhus; doctrinal network; diachronic reading
