Currently reading E. H. Kantorowicz’s The King’s Two Bodies. Fascinating thesis but some difficulties at first. EHK claims that later Western medieval theology and politics operates around a Christian heresy: monophysitism. While he is correct to note that the dialectic forms (deconstructs) Western political theology, much of the book seems to point that Nestorianism, not monophytism, is the heresy in question.
It may not be that big a deal, though. If as St John of Damascus said, “Heretics confuse person and nature,” then it follows that all heresies deconstruct on that particular point. If that is true, call it either monophytism or Nestorianism–it’s the same end game.
