Chapter Summary

Part of the problem during the Nestorian and Miaphysite controversies in the fifth and sixth centuries was that terms like fúd?? and úp?tstast? carried different meanings for different authors, even within the writings of one and the same author. This was bound to lead to misunderstandings. But when these terms or their translations, like 'nature' and 'hypostasis', are employed in present-day literature about these controversies the ambiguities often return, which adds more misunderstandings. In order to reduce the equivocality, this chapter defines a number of terms, which can be recognized by their being written in small capitals. In the second part of this chapter, such a translation of words into small-capital terms will be executed for the interpretations of Cyril's christology by modern authors, so that it will become more obvious where they are in line with each other, and where they diverge.

Keywords: Cyril's christology; Interpretations; small capitals
