[muh-nawf-uh-sit-iz-um] (Greek mono-, “one” + Greek phusis, “nature”) The belief that the two natures of Christ, human and divine, came together in the incarnation to make one new nature. It was condemned as heretical in 451 at the Council of Chalcedon. Chalcedon held that the two natures of Christ remain completely intact in one person. For more information, see here.
