Dictionary of Christian Biography and Literature to the End of the Sixth Century/Anomoeans

Anomoeans (from ἀνόμοιος, dissimilar ), one of the appellations of the radical Arians who, in opposition to the Athanasian or Nicene doctrine of the consubstantiality (ὁμοουσία) and the semi-Arian view of the likeness (ὁμοιουσία) of the Son to the Father, taught that the Son was dissimilar, and of a different substance (ἑτεροούσιος). [ Arianism.]
