Frequently Asked Questions

Q. 1. What can you tell me about the heresy of Audianism?

A. 1. The heresy of Audianism was associated with a fourth-century group in Christianity, the heresy named after their Syrian leader Audius (or Audaeus).

This group held two heretic beliefs:

- It taught that God had a human form (anthropomorphism). Audius took the text of Genesis, chapter 1, verse 27, literally, and held that God had a human form.

- It taught that we should celebrate Jesus' death during the Jewish Passover (quartodecimanism). Quartodecimans were honouring the death of Christ on the eve of the Jewish Passover instead of observing the Roman tradition of celebrating Easter on a Sunday.

The First Council of Nicaea condemned quartodecimanism in 325. Cyril of Alexandria (c. 376444) condemned anthropomorphism at his Adversus Anthropomorphites.
