Council of Ephesus
The Council of Ephesus met in A.D. 431 to condemn the heresy of Nestorianism, a heresy that taught that there were two distinct persons in Jesus Christ, a human and a divine. Consequentially, it affirmed the right of Mary to be called "Mother of God". It affirmed the Twelve Anathemas of Cyril of Alexandria and exiled Nestorius to the Egyptian desert.
