Assyrian Church of the East
The Holy Apostolic Catholic Assyrian Church of the East separated from the Orthodox Church after the Council of Ephesus (AD 431).
The Assyrian Church of the East (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 Council of Chalcedon in an opposite way from the Monophysites.
The current head is His Holiness Mar Gewargis III, Catholicos-Patriarch.
