MACEDONIANISM

Definition

The heresy named after Macedonius, Arian Bishop of Constantinople (d. c. 362), whose followers denied the divinity of the Holy Spirit. Unlike Macedonius, most of his followers acknowledged the divinity of Christ. The heresy was opposed by Athanasius, Basil, and Gregory of Nyssa, and was condemned in 381 by the First Council of Constantinople.
