This is a history of the so-called "Monophysite" schism from the Council of Chalcedon to the Muslim conquest. Wigram portrays this as an unnecessary and political conflict driven by national pride and ecclesiastical jealousy over a difference of phrasing. The final chapter examines the Christology of Severus, Philoxenus, and Theodosius.
