A Gnostic sect said to have flourished in Galatia about the latter hall of the 3century. Their teaching, based on the crudest form of dualism, held that matter is coeternal with God, that evil is to be attributed to God as well as to matter, that the human spul is formed from earthly elements by angels. They did not practise baptism; by hell they understood the present world; resurrection was explained as merely the procreation of children. They interpreted Psalms 18:6 as meaning that Christ left His body in the sun. They were the source of other errors by disciples who called themselves Proclinianites or Hermeonites.
