Overview

Cyril of Alexandria was a theologian, bishop, and Church Father. He is most remembered for his intelligent writing, his strong condemnation of heresy, and the Nestorian Schism. The dispute between Cyril and Nestorius, Patriarch of Constantinople, over different Christological views was decided in favor of Cyril at the First Council of Ephesus in 431 and the Council of Chalcedon in 451. Churches supporting Nestorius’ teachings split from the Orthodox church, forming their own denominations. Although this era was a tumultuous time for the Church, Cyril produced many theological works of notable achievement, including the Five Tomes against Nestorius.

About Cyril of Alexandria

Cyril of Alexandria (c. 376 – 444) was the Patriarch of Alexandria from 412 to 444. He came to power when the city was at its height of influence and power within the Roman Empire. Cyril wrote extensively and was a leading protagonist in the Christological controversies of the later 4th and 5th centuries. He was a central figure in the First Council of Ephesus in 431, which led to the deposition of Nestorius as Patriarch of Constantinople.
