The analysis of Breviarium 11-14 raises various questions, e.g. why the theology of Chalcedon is nearly missing. Neither the Chalcedonense nor the Tomus Leonis are quoted. Only the position of Eutyches and that of Flavian become clear. Thus the tendency of the Breviarium seems to be sceptical towards interpretations according to which the Christological debate can be seen as victory of a clear position of the bishops of Rome. Even the canons of Chalcedon (with canon 28) are located on a wrong place in the narrative order, but here Liberatus follows only his sources.
