      Id probably Eliminate it, But otherwise Id list it a Saturnius
      as follows


      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.
