Anomoeans (from ἀνόμοιος , dissimilar ), one of the appellations of the radical Arians who, in opposition to the Athanasian or Nicene doctrine of the consubstantiality (ὁμοουσία ) and the semi-Arian view of the likeness ( ὁμοιουσία ) of the Son to the Father, taught that the Son was dissimilar, and of a different substance (ἑτεροούσιος ). [See Arianism.]
