1 Definition(s) from various sources:

These churches broke away from the rest of Christianity after the Council of Chalcedon (451) declared their distinctive belief about Jesus' nature incorrect. Whereas the Council decided that Jesus was a combination of two natures (human and divine), the monophysites believe that he had only one nature, namely, a divine one. The Coptic, Ethiopic and Armenian Church broke away and still hold monophysite beliefs.
