FARVONIANS, a branch of the Socinians; so called from Farvonius, who flourished in the sixteenth century. He asserted, that Christ had been produced out of nothing by the Supreme Being, before the creation of the world; and warned his disciples against paying religious worship either to the son or Spirit.[1] See Socinians.
