Leadership, Doctrinal Crisis, and the Transformation of the Antiochene Network

(p.81) 4 Ephesus and After
Theodoret's People

Adam M. Schor

University of California Press

This chapter addresses the social roots and effects of doctrinal conflict during the Nestorian controversy. It examines the dispute over Nestorius from the perspective of the Antiochene network that supported and then abandoned him and describes the social actions of Antiochene clerics as they fractured and reassembled their network. It suggests that Theodoret of Cyrrhus' successful mediation in this controversy can be credited to a well-timed rationale for reforming his community.

Keywords:   Nestorian controversy, doctrinal conflict, Antiochene network, social networks, Antiochene clerics, Theodoret of Cyrrhus, Nestorius
