But the Monophysites always withstood the Catholic doctrine, declaring it to be Nestorian, or half Nestorian [the Nestorians said Christ had two hypostases, sometimes rendered 'persons,' as well as two natures], and that it divided Christ into two.... [S]tarting from the same proposition that every physis [nature] is a hypostasis, the Monophysites argued that a Christ is one Person, one Hypostasis, so He is one Nature, and they preferred "is one nature" to the equivalent "has one nature".... But however harmless the formula "one nature" might look at first sight, it led in fact immediately to serious and disastrous consequences.
