Apollinarianism is a relatively obscure fourth-century Christological heresy. Named after Apollinarius of Laodoecia, its main author, Appollinarianism teaches that the flesh of Jesus Christ did not have a human soul because a soul was not necessary for the Divine Logos. Apollinarianism was condemned at the Second Ecumenical Council together with Macedonianism and other Christological and Trinitarian heresies. Adherents of Nestorianism, such as Theodoret of Cyrrhus sometimes accused Orthodox theologians of Apollinarianism.
