Chapter Summary

This chapter draws conclusions regarding the meaning of the various terms and expressions in Cyril of Alexandria's christological writings during the first two years of the Nestorian controversy. Based on this, it also looks at Cyril's christology and soteriology. At times, though, extrapolations for the period after 430 is made as well. The chapter discusses a few passages from later works, which recur frequently in the literature on Cyril's understanding, while for the μία φύσιϛ formula all its occurrences in later writings are taken into account. It sums up Cyril of Alexandria's basic usage of the term φύσιϛ not just in the trinitarian writings, but also in his christological works. The thorough investigation of Cyril's christological works from the first two years of the Nestorian controversy has made it possible to draw firm conclusions about his own christological vocabulary, before any alleged concessions were made to the Antiochenes.

Keywords: christological writings; Cyril of Alexandria's; Nestorian controversy; soteriology
