Dythelitism is the Christological doctrine that Jesus Christ had two wills, the divine and human. It was championed by Maximus the Confessor against monothelitism, the doctrine of one will.

Dythelitism is the doctrine of all Eastern Orthodox, Roman Catholic, and Protestant churches today, having been affirmed by the Third Council of Constantinople, the sixth ecumenical council, in 681.
