Religious identities in ancient Near Eastern Christianity were mainly and primarily defined along the lines of Christological positions held by the different Christian communities. 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.
