Definition of Chalcedon

We, then, following the holy fathers, all with one consent, teach all men to confess one and the same Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, the same perfect in Deity and also perfect in humanity; truly God and truly man, of a rational soul and body; con-substantial with the Father according to the Deity, and in these last days, for us and our salvation, born of the Virgin Mary, the Mother of God, according to the humanity; one and the same Christ, Son, Lord, only-begotten, to be acknowledged in two natures, without confusion, without alteration, without division, without separation; the distinction of the natures being by no means taken away by the union, but rather the characteristics of each nature being preserved, and concurring in one Person and Hypostasis, not parted or divided into two persons, but one and the same Son, and only-begotten, God the Word, the Lord Jesus Christ; as the prophets from the beginning said about Him, and the Lord Jesus Himself taught us, and the Symbol of the holy fathers has handed down to us.
