Thirty-seventh day of Lent

Doctor Leo the Great's twenty-eighth letter (complete)

Pope Leo I was the first to be called "the Great."  This letter, also called "The Tome," helped to resolve the controversy over the two natures of Christ at the Council of Chalcedon (which in turn brought the Monophysite heresy, easily confused with Miaphysitism, to schism).
