So I was just wanting to create a thread where my OO brothers and sisters can discuss St Cyril's formula of reunion with John of Antioch. Discussing both its flaws and its good points. I know that due to its ambiguities it was misinterpreted by Theodoreans, but the OO Fathers upheld it, and I would like someone to post the writings of some OO Fathers on the formulary. I have heard that St Severus of Antioch discusses it in his works "contra grammaticum" and "philalethes", unfortunately I have, as of yet, not been able to purchase these works. So I would like to know your thoughts on it. Here's the formulary; contrary to popular belief the formulary isn't the letter to John as a whole, but only this one passage of said letter:
We confess, therefore, our Lord Jesus Christ, the Only Begotten Son of God, perfect God, and perfect Man of a reasonable soul and flesh consisting; begotten before the ages of the Father according to his Divinity, and in the last days, for us and for our salvation, of Mary the Virgin according to his humanity, of the same substance with his Father according to his Divinity, and of the same substance with us according to his humanity; for there became a union of two natures. Wherefore we confess one Christ, one Son, one Lord.According to this understanding of this unmixed union, we confess the holy Virgin to be Mother of God; because God the Word was incarnate and became Man, and from this conception he united the temple taken from her with himself.
For we know the theologians make some things of the Evangelical and Apostolic teaching about the Lord common as per-raining to the one person, and other flyings they divide as to the two natures, and attribute the worthy ones to God on account of the Divinity of Christ, and the lowly ones on account of his humanity [to his humanity].
