The Council of Ephesus was an ecumenical council held in Ephesus in Asia Minor in 431 AD. It was chiefly concerned with Nestorianism, a doctrine that emphasized the human nature of Jesus at the expense of the divine. The Council denounced Nestorius' teaching as erroneous and decreed that Jesus was one person who was both fully God and fully man, and not two separate "people". Mary's title theotokos or "Mother of God" was affirmed in the council. Following the Council of Ephesus the Assyrian Church of the East split from the rest of the church.
