D) The Heresy of Eutyches (Eutychianism):Eutyches was an archimandrite of a monastery in Constantinople. He zealouslyopposed the Nestorian heresy and was so highly concerned about the unity of the twonatures in Christ, which Nestorus tore apart, that he fell into another heresy.Eutyches said that the human nature was absorbed and dissolved in the Divine natureas a drop of vinegar in the ocean. In this way, he denied the human nature of Christ.After St. Dioscorus had excommunicated him, Eutyches pretended that he repented andaccepted the true faith and St. Dioscorus allowed him to return on the condition that hewould refute his heresy. Later on however, he again declared his corrupt belief and wascondemned by the Council of Chalcedon held in 451 A.D., and was alsoexcommunicated by the Coptic Church.
