Chapter Summary

This article discusses the origin, development, and propagation of the East Syrian 'Nestorian' Christology of the two natures and two hypostaseis in Christ. It is argued that the process of the formation of the East Syrian Christological identity took a relative long time due to the complex and pluriform cultural tradition in East Syrian Christianity by the end of the sixth century and the radically changing historical, political, and social conditions in late sixth- and early seventh-century Iraq. The discussion on the authority of Theodore, being the aftermath of the Fifth Council in the Church of Persia, had become urgent, owing to aggressive Miaphysite propaganda in Iraq.

Keywords: 'Nestorian' Christology; Christological identity; East Syrian Church; Fifth Council; Iraq; Theodore
