AGNOETAE, [unknowing,] a denomination of the fourth century, followers of Theophronius,the Cappadocian, who called in question the omniscience of God; alleging that he knew things past only by memory, and future only by an uncertain prescience. Another sect of the same name arose about the year 535, who followed the sentiments of Themistius, deacon of Alexandria, who, from Mark xiii. 32, denied that Christ, in any sense, knew the day of judgment.[1]
