Show Summary Details


This chapter evaluates Theodoret of Cyrrhus' performance as Antiochene leader. It describes how Theodoret responded to the several crises including the suppressed clash in 435–440), a shaky truce in 440–447) and a renewed controversy 447–450. The analysis indicates that Theodoret was able to reinforce core Antiochene relations and expand contacts with distant clerics and lay officials while offering a new sense of Antiochene identity.
