So you undertook the labour of a long voyage from the East to the West to give light to the souls which were plunged in the darkness of the Egyptian error and intent 5 on the smoke of the blasphemy of Apollinarius; men, however, loved the darkness more than the light, since the eyes of their minds [were dimmed] by personal prejudice 6. They were not convinced; they were convicted of error and exposed. In this firm confidence in the might of your prayers mine Insignificance draws nigh to translate this book from Greek into Syriac; yet at least, the hope of the help of the living God being laid upon my tongue and confirmed in my thoughts, I therefore draw nigh to compose these eight chapters wherein the purpose of the book is made clear. Concerning the aim of the book. The aim, therefore, which has been proposed by the writer for this writing is this: that, because many, thoughtlessly [led astray] by the multitude of men and by the desire of possessions, have fallen without examination into the slough of prejudice through hatred and through attachment to persons, 7 from which.

About - Written while he was in exile, 'The Bazaar of Heracleides' was Nestorius' attempt to give an account of his thought in the face of condemnation. The book is written in dialogue form in order to advance Nestorius' basic Christological ideas.
The Incarnation is the union of God and human, the nature ousia of each being complete and remaining distinct from the other. Nestorius asserts that the two natures are united in one prosopon, so there is one Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. The prosopon of the man Jesus and that of God are the same and they are both present in the one prosopon of Jesus Christ.
Jesus is born of the Virgin Mary, but God the Word is not born, and does not grow, suffer, or die. Hence, Mary is not Theotokos, God-bearer. This assertion, according to Nestorius, does not mean that there are two Sons, or two Christs.

The Bazaar Of Heracleides
Nestorius, The Bazaar of Heracleides pp. Fellows of Magdalen College. The present volume is the result of collaboration between two colleagues, the one a student of the Semitic languages, the other of Christian doctrine. After the former had prepared an English translation of the whole work, the manuscript was handed over to the latter, who read it carefully through; the difficulties were then jointly discussed. The editors hope that by this means they are able to offer a reliable rendering of the original text. The absence of any English edition of a work which has given rise to much theological discussion has, in their opinion, justified them in undertaking the task; but, although their edition is based on an independent study of the Syriac version itself, they desire to acknowledge their indebtedness to MM.
The Bazaar of Heracleides
Nestorius, Archbishop of Constantinople, stood strongly against the custom of calling Mary the Mother of God; his opponents led by Cyril of Alexandria, claimed that he denied that Jesus was God. He was condemned by the Council of Ephesus, deposed, and eventually sent into exile in Egypt. This dialogue, which he wrote in Egypt, replies to his adversaries; it is translated from the Syriac translation of which one manuscript was discovered in and disappeared in the First World War. Nestorius asserts that Jesus was truly God, truly man, and truly one; he condemns the doctrine associated with his name; he also condemns the doctrine of Cyril.
