Show Summary Details


This chapter discusses the legacy of doctrinal and Christological conflict during and after the Council of Chalcedon. It suggests that while the Council of Chalcedon was not a complete triumph for Theodoret of Cyrrhus' network, it helped reshape some parts of the Antiochene socio-doctrinal dynamic. It argues that the Christological dispute was not just a mismatch of doctrines nor a contest for authority but was a crucial episode in the formation of partisan religious community.

Keywords: doctrinal conflict; Christological conflict; Council of Chalcedon; Theodoret of Cyrrhus; Antiochene socio-doctrinal dynamic; partisan religious community
