Ephesus, Third Council of

Æcumenical Council, 431. Presided over by Saint Cyril, Patriarch of Alexandria, it condemned Nestorius, the Bishop of Constantinople, who taught that Mary did not bring forth the Word of God, but the Man who became the temple of the Godhead, "the animated purple of the King." The decision of the council was received with wide acclaim.
