The Councils, Episode 7: Council of Chalcedon (Part I: Monophysitism)

Within 20 years of the Council of Ephesus, a new error arises: monophysitism, which teaches that Our Lord only had one nature, a divine one. Once again the Church tries subsidiarity and to resolve the issue at a local level, but heretics are most proud and unwilling to take correction, hence a Council has to be called. But a true council was not called, but rather the Robber Council of Ephesus, which is confirmed in its teachings by the Emperor and for a period of 2 years, makes it seem that error has triumphed. More and more the political nature of Christianity in the East is laid bare, in particular the naked and untraditional pretensions and ambitions of Constantinople.
