'''Aphtharto[[docetism]]''' (Greek ἄφθαρτος ''aphthartos'' "incorruptible" + δόκησις ''dokisis'' "[mere] appearance") also known as '''Julianism,''' is a [[heresy]] formulated by the [[non-Chalcedonian]] bishop [[Julian of Halicarnassus |Julian ]] of [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Halicarnassus Halicarnassus] in the 6th century. It is a form of [[Monophysitism]] that argues [[Christ]]'s body was always impassible, a doctrine which Julian believed was necessary for Christ's suffering and death to have been voluntary. Julian's aphthartodocetist Christology forced him to reject [[Cyril of Alexandria | St. Cyril]]'s teaching that Christ's body changed after the [[Resurrection]].<ref>Zachariah of Mitylene, ''Syriac Chronicle'' Book 9 Chapter 10, trans.
