(Labbe and Cossart, Concilia Tom. III., col. 459 et seqq.)
The Nicene Synod set forth this faith:
We believe in one God, etc.
When this creed had been recited, Peter the Presbyter of Alexandria, and primicerius of the notaries said:
We have in our hands the letter of the most holy and most reverend archbishop Cyril, which he wrote to the most reverend Nestorius, filled with counsel and advice, on account of his aberration from the right faith. I will read this if your holiness [i.e., the holy Synod] so orders.…The letter began as follows:
Καταφλυαροῦσι μὲν, ὡς ἀκούω, κ.τ.λ.
Intelligo quosdam meæ, etc.
Next: The Epistle of Cyril to Nestorius.
