The '''Third Ecumenical Council''' was held in [[Ephesus]], Asia Minor in 431 under Emperor [[Theodosius II]], grandson of [[Theodosius I|Theodosius the Great]]. Approximately 200 Bishops were present, though procedings began in haste before the arrival of the bishops from the west. The procedings were conducted in a heated atmosphere of confrontation and recriminations. It was the third of the [[Ecumenical Councils]], and was chiefly concerned with [[Nestorianism]].
