Alogi

Explanation

The Alogi were a group of heterodox Christians in Asia Minor that flourished around 170 CE. What we know of them is derived from their doctrinal opponents, whose literature is extant, particularly St. Epiphanius of Salamis. It was Epiphanius who coined the name "Alogi" as a word play suggesting that they were both illogical and they were against the Christian doctrine of the Logos.

ALOGI. This name was given by Epiphanius to those who denied St. John's doctrine concerning the Logos, and who consequently rejected St. John's writings. The term was not intended to imply that there was a distinct organized sect so called; but was adopted to describe a heresy common to not a few sects, and important enough to bring all who held it into one class, theologically considered, although they were formed into several bodies.
