Heresies of the Church Thru the Ages
Eastern heretics, derived from Manichaeism, begun by Constantine Mananalis c.657and existing till about the middle of the 11th century. During the Saracen attacks many of them formed a political party disloyal to the cause of the Roman Empire. Originally they held the following:
the God of the material universe and the God of the spirItual world are distinct
all matter is evil
the Old Testament is to be rejected
Christ was not incarnate but was an angel whose mother was the heavenly Jerusalem
Baptism and the Eucharist consist in hearing the Word of God
there are no other sacraments
They were also Iconoclasts. Their perversions were later embodied in the tenets of the Bogomili, the Cathari, the Albigenses, and exist even today in more or less modified forms amongst some Armenians.
