"We pronounce against them who say that Apollinarianism is in the human flesh in lieu and place of the human rational and intellective. Arianism in England In the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries there was a revival of Arianism in England.
—Apollinaris based his theory on two principles or suppositions, one ontological or objective, and one psychological or subjective. Alexandria with its Museum and Library had been for many centuries the greatest intellectual centre of the Greek world. And he thought that the spirit is the person, the soul and body being, as Apollinarianism were, its clothes a thoroughly Greek view ; and that therefore, if our Lord had had a human spirit, He either would not have been God, or else would have been two persons associated together.
However, by teaching that the deity of Christ absorbed His humanity, they ended up effectively denying that Jesus possesses a true human nature and a true divine nature. In many ways, the church should be thankful for the gift of opposition! He and his father were well respected in the small orthodox community there, and in 361 he was elected their Bishop. Alexandria, which had been the second city of the Empire, was intensely jealous of the "upstart" see of Constantinople.
Therefore the Apollinarianism of Alexandria was always to emphasize the Godhead of Christ even at the expense of His Manhood.
