Abstract

Nicely written, vigorous and well informed, Philippe Luisier's article argues for rejecting the use of the miaphysitism term. It invites us therefore to clarify our vocabulary when it comes to consider the parties and forces in the post-Chalcedonian controversy. It also invites to develop a epistemological reflection; here are proposed some considerations on the field of history, particularly that of the Roman Empire in the fifth and sixth century. In the end, it leads us not to share the suggested proscription.
