Athanasius and his successors are St. Cyril of Alexandria and the entire post-Chalcedonian monophysitism (following Severus), with all of its terminological imprecision. The task of Apollinarius's Christology (a task shared by his successors) was to understand and affirm the unity of the God-Man, given the authenticity of the Incarnation and the reality of the human flesh assumed by Him.

Born into the family of a poor provincial priest, Bulgakov had a strict religious upbringing and entered the seminary at a young age. But owing to a spiritual crisis in the direction of materialism and atheism, he did not complete his seminary studies. He chose instead to follow a secular course of study, which led to his matriculation at the University of Moscow, where he specialized in political economics. This marked the beginning of his relatively short-lived Marxist period. In 1901, after which he defended his master's thesis, "Capitalism and Agriculture" (1900), he was appointed professor of political economy at the Polytechnical Institute of Kiev.
