Theodoret (c.393–c.466). Christian bishop of Cyrrhus near Antioch, and theologian. He was a friend and admirer of Nestorius and became a defender of the Antiochene Christology against Cyril of Alexandria. His writings against Cyril were later condemned at the second Council of Constantinople (553). Theodoret's other works include erudite biblical commentaries, a Religious History giving an account of monks and ascetics in Syria, a church history continuing that of Eusebius to 428, an apology The Cure of Pagan Maladies, and an anti-Monophysite work The Beggar (i.e. his opponent, who has ‘begged’ his various absurd doctrines).
