'''Aphtharto[[docetism]]''' (Greek ἄφθαρτος ''aphthartos'', "incorruptible" + δόκησις ''dokesis'' "[mere] appearance") is a [[heresy]] of the Sixth century formulated by the [[non-Chalcedonian]] bishop [[Julian of Halicarnassus]] (present day Bodrum in Turkey). It a form of [[Monophysitism]] that argues [[Christ]]'s body was always impassible, a doctrine which Julian believed was necessary for Christ's suffering and death to have been voluntary. Julian's aphthartodocetist Christology forced him to reject [[Cyril of Alexandria | St. Cyril]]'s teaching that Christ's body changed after the Resurrection.<ref>Zachariah of Mitylene, ''Syriac Chronicle'' Book 9 Chapter 10, trans.
