5th-c. heresy taking its name from Eutyches,* who asserted that there were 2 natures in Christ before, but only 1 after, the incarnation. In opposition to Nestorianism,* Eutyches taught that the human nature in Christ was absorbed, swallowed up, by the divine nature; thus his doctrine was an expression of Monophysitism.* See also Christological Controversies; Chalcedon, Council of.
