WILHELMINIANS, in the thirteenth century, the disciples of Wilhelmina, a Bohemian woman who resided in the territory of Milan. She persuaded a large number that the Holy Ghost was become incarnate in her person for. the salvation of a great part of mankind. According to her doctrine, none were saved by the blood of Jesus but true and pious christians, while the Jews, Saracens, and unworthy christians were to obtain salvation through the Holy Spirit which dwelt in her and in consequence all which happened to Christ during his abode upon earth was to be repeated in her person.[1]
