 The Writings of Cyril of Alexandria
Cyril responded with a focussed insistence on the absolute oneness of the incarnate Christ: there is ever and only a single subject to the 'who' of the incarnate Word -- the 'Word made flesh', as indicated by John (Jn 1.14).
In explaining this singular subjectivity, Cyril developed the Christological language of an hypostatic union by appropriation; that is, a union of natures at the level of hypostasis, or subsistent, existential reality, by which the eternal Logos appropriates to himself the fullness of true human life.
Through this language of hypostatic union, Cyril was able to articulate a genuine union of natures which did not inculcate either nature in a merger or transformation (Nestorius' concern), whilst still maintaining the singular subjectivity of the incarnate Christ (as per Athanasius before him).
