Historic agreement between churches

Senior theologians in Anglican Communion and Oriental Orthodox Churches have made history by signing an agreement on their mutual understanding of Christ's incarnation.

This subject has divided the Church since AD 451, leaving the Oriental Orthodox Churches separated from the Eastern Orthodox Churches and the Church of Rome.
Work to reconcile these branches of the Christian family began in earnest in the 1990s. At issue is how the two natures, human and divine, were united in one human being: Jesus Christ.

An Agreed Statement on Christology will now be sent to "the responsible authorities of the Oriental Orthodox Churches and the Anglican Communion for their consideration and action".
