The Christological Controversy

In the last installment of this department we introduced somewhat to you the Christological controversy.  As the name suggests it deals directly with the doctrines pertaining to Christ.  The heretical view of Apollinaris was briefly stated at that time.  The chief characteristic of his view is that he denies that Christ has a complete human […]
