Dositheans

Additional Links

Followers of Dositheus, a Samaritan who is said to have formed a Gnostic-Judaistic sect previous to Simon Magus; Dositheus is often classed as the first heretic. Nothing certain is known of his life or activities. He is considered more as the founder of a Jewish sect than an anti-Christian heretic.
