Mariological heresy professed by Bonosus of Sardica and Hevidius from Rome in the fourth century. Council of Capua (391)
The aim of the present paper is to emphasize the doctrinal debates on the perpetual virginity of the Mother of God disputed in the second half of the fourth century by Bonosus, the bishop of Sardica and the heretic Helvidius of Rome. In this sense, I largely exposed the doctrine of these two her- esiarchs and the reasons that led the Holy Fathers to condemn and to excommunicate them from the Church.
