It is beleived that many of these the reasons that caused this great schism to be were political and also due to different interpretations of languages. The [[Coptic ]] Orthodox Church never beleived in [[MonophystismMonophysitism]] as it was claimed. It always beleived that in [[Miaphysitism]] i.e. Christ is one ''from'' two natures, i.e. [[Miaphysitism]]. In other words, Christ is a full human and a full God, both natures are united without separation, confusion, or alteration. This can be noted in the confession part in the Coptic [[Divine Liturgy ]] "... He made It one with His divinity without mingling, without confusion, and without alteration ..." ( 'It' refers to the Flesh taken from Saint Mary the [[Theotokos]]) which is what [[Cyril of Alexandria]] and [[Dioscorus of Alexandria]] said but was lately misunderstood to be in favour of [[Monophysitism]] or [[Eutychianism]].
The dialogues between Oriental and Eastern Orthodox Churches started again in the 20th century after more than 15 centuries of seperation. During these dialogues, both parties found that they agree on many theological terms and definitions including this point that seperated them in the first place which came in favour to the opinions suggested that factors such as politics intervened in their seperation. <ref>[ Orthodox Unity - Statements from the Dialogue between the Eastern and Oriental Orthodox Churches]</ref>
