Theotokos eng.

In Greek Θεοτόκος - transliterated Theotókos; Latin Deipara, Dei genetrix. It is a title of Mary, mother of Jesus. It literally means she who gives birth to God and it is rendered in Italian as Mother of God. This title was given in 431 by the Council of Ephesus.  In the mind of the council, the aim of the affirmation was to underline the divinity of Jesus Christ. In fact, if Jesus is God – as was mentioned previously in the council of Ephesus – then Mary may be referred to as Mother of God. The title was given against the wishes of Nestorius, who preferred the title of Christotokos.  The feast day of Mary, Mother of God is celebrated by the Church on the 1st of January
