Saturnius [Gnostic, 2nd century], another heresiarch ["originator of a
heresy", etc.], held, according to both authors [Irenaeus [c. 130 - c. 200].
Hippolytus [c. 170 - c. 236 (St.)].], to the phantasmal theory of Jesus' body, which
attained such popularity among other Gnostic sects that "Docetism," as the
opinion was called, came to be looked upon by later writers as one of the marks
of heresy3, and Hippolytus imagines that there were in existence sects who
attached such importance to this point that they called themselves simply Docetics
That should be sufficient for a Glossary.
