According to Canon 95 of the Quinisext Ecumenical Council, Arians, Macedonians, Novatians (Cathari), Aristeri, Tetradites, and Apollinarians ought to be received on their presentation of certificates of faith and on their anathematizing every heresy by the anointing of the holy chrism, as opposed to Paulianists, Eunomeans, Montanists, and Sabellians, who ought to be rebaptized, while Manichoeans, Valentinians, Marcionites, Nestorians, Eutychians, Dioscorus, Severus, and all of similar heresies ought to give certificates of faith and anathematize each his own heresy in order to participate in the eucharist.
Underwood states that Caffyn's opponent, Thomas Monk, "had put his finger on Caffyn's docetic error by publishing A cure for the cankering errors of the new Eutychians [sic]." (7) In discussing the state of General Baptists on the eve of the rise of Daniel Taylor's movement, Underwood portrays the movement as in "decline" and a state of "ruin" because of Caffyn's low Christology.
The Church of the Via Media was in the position of the Oriental communion, Rome was where she now is; and the Protestants were the Eutychians." This was his first doubt about the "tenableness of Anglicanism." (9)
The second group of heretics is the one that is the most significant for Peter the Venerable: the Arians, Macedonians, Sabellians, Donatists, Pelagians, Nestorians, and Eutychians. Peter charged the Arians with dividing the Trinity, the Macedonians with the same, the Sabellians with confusing the unity of the Trinity, the Donatists with claiming to be the only true church, the Pelagians with relying on works not grace, and the Nestorians and Eutychians with denying the full divinity and humanity of Christ.
The starting point for Gaidioz was the statement of Gennadius, writing at the end of the fifth century, that Prosper was believed to have drafted correspondence on behalf of Leo countering the Eutychians.(19) Gaidioz went on from this external evidence to show specifically, through a careful examination of its style and content, that Prosper had a hand in drafting one particular anti-Eutychian letter, the Tome to Flavian if 449.
The primary aim of the latest Tome was to combat the Eutychians, and to prevent the Emperor Leo making any concessions to them in order to secure imperial control over Egypt.
In a sermon against the Eutychians delivered at Rome in 458 there are echoes of a previous letter against the Monophysites in the East.(58) The measurement of how far Leo was involved in the production of the sermons which he delivered, particularly those requiring some theological ability and knowledge, should make it possible to test the validity of these different interpretations.
As for Nestorians, Eutychians and Severians, and those of such heresies, they need to give certificates ...
Of the groups enumerated in the canon, only the Nestorians and the Eutychians and Severians (i.e., non-Chalcedonians), for all of whom reception by profession of faith is prescribed, are still extant.
