Abstract: In this paper we prove the following form of the Phragmen-Brouwer Theorem: a locally connected, connected normal $ {T_1}$-space $ X$ is unicoherent if and only if for every pair of disjoint nonseparating continua $ C$ and $ D$ in $ X$, $ C \cup D$ does not separate $ X$. Among the several corollaries is the proposition: $ X$ is multicoherent if and only if $ X$ is the union of a circular chain of continua $ \left\{ {{A_0},{A_1},{A_2},{A_3}} \right\}$ where no three of the $ {A_i}$'s have a point in common.
