  1. Council of Ephesus

    The Council of Ephesus was a council of Christian bishops convened in Ephesus (near present-day Selçuk in Turkey) in AD 431 by the Roman Emperor Theodosius II. This third ecumenical council, an effort to attain consensus in the church through an assembly representing all of Christendom, confirmed the original Nicene Creed, and condemned the teachings of Nestorius, Patriarch of Constantinople, who held that the Virgin Mary may be called the Christotokos, "Christ-bearer" but not the Theotokos, "God-bearer". It met in June and July 431 at the Church of Mary in Ephesus in Anatolia.

  1. council of ephesus

    The Council of Ephesus was the third ecumenical council of the Christian church, convened in 431 AD in the city of Ephesus, now in modern-day Turkey. It was assembled to address the Nestorian controversy within the church, revolving around the nature of Christ. The council ultimately condemned Nestorianism, which denies the unity of divine and human nature in Christ, and affirmed the Virgin Mary's title as "Theotokos," or "Mother of God." Its decisions are considered binding within Eastern Orthodox, Roman Catholic, and other Christian traditions.
