Christian Cyclopedia

About the Cyclopedia


View, defended esp. by adherents of Monophysitism,* that when Christ suffered and died the whole Godhead suffered and died; rejected by orthodox Christianity on basis of the fact that Scripture teaches that only the Son of God became incarnate, suffered, and died, not the Father and the Holy Spirit. See also Monarchianism, B; Patripassianism.
