Dear all

I am working on a paper about Eutyches, his biography, Christology, and eventual condemnation.

I'd be grateful if people could post the questions that come to mind about him in the widest sense, so that I can try to make sure that my paper covers things as much as possible.

Dear Peter,

As I understand it, St. Dioscoros supported Eutyches on the basis of his confession that 'Christ is consubstantial with His mother' - but added that Christ was not consubstantial with us. This has always puzzled me - why did Eutyches draw this distinction? What doctrine did he hold of the Theotokos?

In Christ,

In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins. (1 John 4:10)
