302 MATTHEW OF WESTMINSTER. A.D. 647. his grandfather, Heraclius Augustus, had done. And the Monothelites assert that there is but one nature in Christ, contrarr to the orthodox faith. For the Son of God says of the divinity of his essence, " I and the Father are one and, speaking of the substance of his humanity, he says—" The Father is greater than I ; " but we will discuss these matters more at length hereafter.
