Hi. Why does the Syriac text show up as something else (pre-Aramaic script Hebrew?) rather than Syriac? I tried to edit it (I have the Syriac keyboard on my computer) but it didn't make any difference. I've seen Syriac script show up elsewhere on Wikipedia, so why doesn't it work here?
Excellent article; but where is the bibliography?
Miaphysitism: Divinity and Humanity are united in one "nature" ("physis"), the two being united without separation, without confusion, and without alteration.
Dyophysitism: Christ is one person in two natures, but emphasizes that the natures are "without confusion, without change, without division, without separation".
Is this the schism? 1 nature here and 2 nature there, and the whole googleplex of it yet having exactly identical qualities. Am I stupid, or ... ... said: Rursus (bork²) 14:03, 2 June 2009 (UTC)
Rursus, this schism was and is a complex mix of conflict involving theology, language, personalities, politics, and culture. The supporters of Chalcedon tended to be members of the dominant Greco-Roman social and political elements, while those who rejected it were mostly from culturally and politically marginal groups, the rural Syrians, the Copts, the Armenians. --Midnite Critic (talk) 15:46, 3 June 2009 (UTC)
