The Monothelites were a 7th century Christian group that insisted that the unity of Christ implied only one type of intention, will and activity or operation (energeia). Personality, in their view, was manifested in will and action, and that one personality meant one will and one category of action. Jesus Christ, under their view, was only one divino-human will and one divino-human activity. Their doctrine won widespread support when it was first formulated in 638. They were denounced as heretics and the doctrine was condemned at the Third Council of Constantinople (680-681).
