BIDDELIANS, the followers of John Biddle, a Socinian, who in the year 1644 erected an independent congregation in London. He taught that Jesus Christ hath no other than a human nature; and yet, like Socinus, made no scruple of calling him God, on account of the divine sovereignty with which he was invested.[1] See Socinians.
