Created with Fabric.js 1.4.5 GnosticismThe date of origin and founder of this heresy are unknown. It taught that everything material was evil and believed in achieving salvation through secret experiential knowledge. Apollinarianism Apollonaris was the bishop of Laodicea and strongly disagreed with Arian. However In an attempt to make a statement against him he committed another heresy. He said that although Christ had a human body he lacked a human mind or will, this obviously contradicts the fact that Jesus was fully human. MonophysitismThe person who began this heresy is uncertain. It was the main conflict of Council of Chalcedon. It stated that Jesus' human nature was simply a small part of his divine nature. It said he was of one nature, hence the name, and his human aspects were "incorporated" into the divine ones. ArianismThis heresy, founded by Arian, stated that Christ was not God nor was equal to God. Arianism renounced Jesus' divinity and said he was simply a great prophet. NestorianismPatriarch Nestorius of Constantinople inadvertently started this heresy trying to correct Apollinaris. He said that Jesus was fully human and fully divine but stated that Mary was his human mother, not the mother of God. A heresy is the obstinate denial by a baptized person of some truth that must be believed with divine faith. In the early years the Church witnessed five major heresies; Gnosticism, Arianism, Apollinarianism, Nestorianism, Monophysitism.
