The incarnation
Pages 19

Phase 1 (11/632-114/733) Though the incarnation specifically did not yet become a major topic for discussion during this phase, some commentary on the relationship between Islam and the other three major Christologies of the time (Monophysitism, Chalcedonianism, and Nestorianism) in the extant texts will be made here. The texts that have survived appear to treat any Christology other than those of their authors on an equally heretical footing, Islam included, thus revealing the origin of Islam as possibly a Christology in the minds of Christians.
