Nestorianism

Nestorianism is the doctrine that the two individual natures of Christ, the human and the divine, are joined in conjunction (“synapheia”) rather than in hypostatic union.[1] The doctrine is identified with Nestorius (c.·386–c.·451), Archbishop of Constantinople. This view of Christ was condemned at the First Council of Ephesus in 431, and the conflict over this view led to the Nestorian schism, separating the Assyrian Church of the East from the churches adherent to the First Council of Ephesus, among them being the Roman Catholic Church, the Eastern Orthodox Church, and the Oriental Orthodox Church.
