ABSTRACT: This paper aims to review the positions of Theodoret of Cyrus on Messalianism. After a brief presentation on Messalianism and of the position taken against it by some Church Fathers and synods, the author formulates the hypothesis that Theodoret, while taking a position on Messalianism, was careful not to harm the reputation of Antioch, as this theological centre could be perceived in Alexandria as a fief of Messalianism in the East. In Historia religiosa Theodoret carefully avoids any association of his ascetic heroes with Messalianism. The report on Messianism in Historia ecclesiastica also carefully disconnects Antioch from Messalianism and declared that Syria was cleared up of their influence

Key words: Theodoret of Cyrus; Messalianism; Antioch; Historia Religiosa; Historia ecclesiastica; Theodoret on Messalianism
