Product Description

In the early 5th century the Christian world was racked by one of the fiercest theological disputes it had known since the Arian crisis of the previous century, this time focusing on the nature of the personhood of Christ. Among the disputed elements of this theological crisis, were how exactly Christ's divine and human characteristics could both co-exist within Jesus without rendering his subjectivity hopelessly divided, or without reducing his authentic humanness to an insubstantiality.

These arguments soon polarized both of the two great churches of Alexandria and Constantinople, lead by their powerful archbishops, St. Cyril and Nestorius respectively. Cyril in On the Unity of Christ argues for the single divine subjectivity of Christ, and describes how it encompasses a full and authentic humanity in Jesus, namely a human experience that is not overwhelmed by the divine presence but fostered and enhanced by it. The text here translated is one of his most important and approachable writings, composed in the aftermath of the Council of Ephesus.
