St. Cyril of Alexandria: The Christological Controversy : Its History, Theology, and Texts
The Christological Controversy describes the turmoil of fifth-century Christianity seeking to articulate its beliefs on the person of Christ.

The historical analysis expounds the arguments of both sides, particularly the Christology of Cyril, which was adopted as a standard.
