APHTHARTODOCETISM. Extreme doctrine that arose out of monophysitism, in Egypt, in the first half of the 6th c., through the work of Julian of Halicarnassus. Thus his followers were called Julianists, in addition to Phantasiastae. Professed the incorruptibility of Christ’s body from his birth. In particular regarding the passion of Christ, it denied the real possibility of his sufferings, accepting the fact that he did suffer by explaining it as a miracle willed by him and not because his body was by nature subject to pain. Justinian converted to this doctrine Evagrius Scholasticus, HE IV,39; Leontius Scholasticus, Sect. V and sought to impose it on the entire East, provoking opposition especially at Antioch. Leontius of Byzantium described its principal points, opposing them from the perspective of the plan of salvation C. Nest. et Eut. II. They were also known as Gaianitae, after Gaianus, the first bishop to lead their separate church. R.
