He was an important thinker who defined the concept of christological orthodoxy for the next two centuries. Cyril is also often regarded as an unscrupulous and power-hungry cleric who was responsible for the murder of the female philosopher Hypatia and for the overthrow of the archbishop Nestorius." "Cyril of Alexandria presents key selections of Cyril's writings in order to make his thought accessible to students."--BOOK JACKET.
