The Nestorian Controversy

The Nestorian Controversy

(p.23) 2 The Nestorian Controversy
The Soteriology of Leo the Great

Bernard Green

Oxford University Press

The Nestorian controversy was Leo's first major experience of theological controversy. His reliance on yet disappointment with Cassian as a theological expert showed how much Leo had to learn. His knowledge and understanding of Cyril of Alexandria was partial; Cyril and Cassian gave him a misleading view of Nestorius, but through Cassian he was introduced to Augustine's Christology through the retraction of Leporius.

Keywords:   Nestorian controversy, Cassian, Cyril of Alexandria, Augustine of Hippo, Christology, Leporius
