What does athinganoi mean?

Here's a list of possible definitions for the term athinganoi:


  1. Athinganoi

    The Athinganoi or Athingani, Ancient Greek: Ἀθίγγανοι, plural of Athinganos, were a 9th-century sect of Monarchians located in Phrygia, founded by Theodotus the banker. The etymology of the word is not certain, but a common determination is a derivation in Greek for " untouchables" derived from a privative alpha prefix and the verb thingano. It is uncertain whether the sect survived beyond the 9th century. They were probably scattered across Anatolia and the Balkans following the destruction of the Paulician capital Tephrike in the 870s. An earlier, and probably quite distinct, sect with the same name is refuted by Marcus Eremita, who seems to have been a disciple of St. John Chrysostom. His book Eis ton Melchisedek, or according to Photius "Against the Melchisedekites", speaks of these new teachers as making Melchisedech an incarnation of the Logos. They were anathematized by the bishops, but would not cease to preach. They seem to have been otherwise orthodox. St. Jerome refutes an anonymous work which identified Melchisedech with the Holy Ghost.
