With the aid of the abbot Dalmatius they enlist Theodosius’ sympathies for Cyril. For we all receive from this same one bread, whereby he makes us participate in the same blood and flesh, which are of the same nature, and we participate with him in the resurrection from the dead and in immortality. Theodosius decides to treat Cyril, Memnon, and Nestorius as all deposed, and to send a new commissioner to Ephesus. An Imperial Rescript arrives in which Cyril is rebuked for his haste, and the bishops are commanded to await the arrival of an Imperial Commissioner in Ephesus.
These [statements] are in fact contradictory. Only, first, when a man has been for centuries condemned unheard, it is hardly fair to enforce a closure on the time allotted to him for his defence; and, secondly, when there is difficulty in determining precisely what he is trying to say, it is possible that in the course of often repeating an argument some little variation bazaag detail may give a clue to the meaning of the whole.
Nestorius, The Bazaar of Heracleides () -xxxv. Introduction
John sends a message refusing to have anything more to do with the Cyrillians. Because he was not by illusion and by deception a body and a soul but in truth all that by nature, there was nothing that was hid.
Let none admit the saying that God the Word is in the body artificially but [that he is] God as [being] God the Word, who existed of old and exists eternally, and came to be in the bodily frame and exists also in the bodily frame, without having come forth out of his own ousia into the heraclejdes of the flesh, or having endured the birth of the flesh but from our ousia.
Sophronius again accuses Nestorius of Nestorianism, and this time he defends himself against the charges by directly denying what is alleged against him.
Or have I surely calumniated the Fathers?
Nestorius, The Bazaar of Heracleides () pp Book 1, Part 1.
In Augustus Neander, in referring to the citations made by Evagrius 3 from a history of his misfortunes written by Nestorius during his exile, wrote ‘That the work bore the title of “Tragedy” is reported by Ebedjesu, a Nestorian metropolitan of the fourteenth century, in his list of Syrian ecclesiastical writers in Assemani bibliotheca orientalis, T. If then I said ‘Christ’ and ‘God the Word another, apart from Christ’, or ‘Christ apart from God the Word’, you would have said well; but if I bazaad not said and do not say this but confess otherwise, still now saying this same thing, pervert not that which I say, and in the very same thing thou wilt find the distinction of whatsoever it 73 indicates.
Because of my having predicated two natures, man and God, I have not predicated two natures of man, though he is called God on account of the union, nor yet two natures of God, although he is called bazaa flesh in the union. Or because I have convicted him of lying concerning the Fathers, of having said that the Fathers called the holy Virgin the mother of God, without even making mention of the birth itself?
There were then two ousias; for the water which was heraacleides by the Hebrews was blood and water and that which was taken by the Egyptians was both in the same way. In view of the charge commonly brought against Nestorianism that it destroys the universal significance for all men of the Incarnation of Christ, it is interesting to find that he defends his own view as alone safeguarding this significance.
Is the bread the body of Christ by a change of ousia? But, if there is not the very same thing in ousia, [this] indicates one thing and another, [for example], the visible and the invisible; and those things from which Christ is [formed] exist in their own ousias and God the Word is not in the nature of both of them.
Is it not evident even to the unintelligent that he was in everything? Caelestine’s Legates arrivethe bishops Arcadius and Projectus and the priest Philip. And wherein he took the schema of a man or of fire, it is said that God appeared or that one saw God; and in another place, that God gave the law, and again: From then on, he had no defenders within the empire, but the Church of the East never accepted his condemnation.
Because of the height of his condescension to him who has been altogether sinful, he came in contempt and in scorn and in lowliness and he was not ashamed of the scorn for the sake of the advantage. Though occasionally pedantically accurate, as when the see of Off of the original text is called by the translator that of Aleppo, 24 it aims generally rather at representing the sense of the original than at reproducing the Greek word for word; for the retention of the Greek redundant negative even against the sense in a few passages is due rather to the tendency of the Syriac language to model itself on Greek, regardless of the requirements of Semitic idiom, than to baaar slavish fidelity of the translator to his original.

I say ‘Christ who [is] in flesh’, as also I predicate the same in the divinity. What words those use who say that the nature of the body was changed into the ousia of God the Word. How then do the things which have been said appear to thee? They were not convinced; they were convicted of error and exposed. For thou sayest that God the Father is body and man, both subject unto beginning and subject unto completion 59 and that he was born of the Blessed Virgin, because he became man.
For him and all those who after his likeness have fallen into this sickness God judges justly and examines them and condemns them in the sight of all; and they are hated by common consent, and in him [men] see all ingratitude and all boldness and arrogance and all wiles and all falsehood and all impiety which springs up and grows great and is brought to fulness, so that it cannot even receive any increase.

But he who speaks so 85 makes not two Gods the Words nor two fleshes, but makes confession completely, without diminution, of the divinity, and of the humanity in which it was made man, that the humanity might not be conceived [to be] fictitious, nor further that by a change of ousia and by a change of likeness the nature of God the Word might even so become the nature of a man. But Ambrose also has said the same and not strange things concerning the union of God and of the flesh: What then is the obscurity before your eyes, that you see not these things?
I have authority over my life, that I should lay it down and I have authority to take it again. Is this proof, concerning which thou keepest silence, of small importance in thy opinion?
This is my beloved Son, he again began other battles. The injustice done to Flavian had been recognized by the Church and off, while that done to himself had not.
