(Greek, ekthesis: a statement of faith) The formula issued in A.D. 638 asserting that the two natures of Christ were united in a single will. Although it was accepted by the Councils held in Constantinople in 638 and 639, it was subsequently condemned by Pope Severinus (638-640) and Pope John IV (640-642) as being heretical.
