Liberatus von Karthago und die „Drei Kapitel“. Anmerkungen zum Breviarium causae Nestorianorum et Eutychianorum 8-10

Uta Heil
From the journal


The analysis of Breviarium 8-10 shows that Liberatus shares his positive view of Cyril with some of his sources. In his eyes, Cyril's theology is that of 433, so the later Miaphysites lack their leading figure. Liberatus concentrates upon Alexandria while he ignores the perspective of the other capitals like Antioch, Constantinople or even Rome. His perspective is typically Western, so Cyril's theology is in full accordance with the Tomus Leonis. For the Three-Chapters-Controversy only Theodore of Mopsuestia seems to be important.
