The '''Holy Apostolic Catholic Assyrian Church of the East''' is an isolated church. It [[schism|separated]] from the [[Orthodox Church]] after the [[Third Ecumenical Council|Council of Ephesus]] (AD 431).
The Assyrian Church of the East ([[Nestorianism|Nestorian]] Church) is sometimes considered an [[Oriental Orthodox]] Church, although it is not in communion with Oriental Orthodox churches and it has a Nestorian or Nestorian-like [[Christology]] that differs from the declaration of the [[Fourth Ecumenical Council|Council of Chalcedon]] in an opposite way from the Monophysites.
The current Head is His Holiness Mar Dinkha IV, [[Catholicos]]-[[Patriarch]].
