were a sect mentioned by John of Damascus as teaching that when Jesus Christ arose from the dead he left his body with his soul in the earth, and that it was the divine nature alone which ascended into heaven. The name of the sect comes from this dissolution of the personality of Christ (see Joh. Damasc. Treatise on Heresies, 93, 108; Patrol. Graec. 94:681).
