Migetius

EIGHTH CENTURY. Spanish theologian. Little is known of him apart from opponents' letters. His obscure teaching contains lurking remnants of Priscillianism,* rejecting all distinction between the Second Person of the Trinity and the Incarnate Christ. He taught that God was revealed successively in David (as Father), Jesus (as Son), and Paul (as Holy Spirit), basing it on an extreme literal exegesis. He was opposed by Elipandus,* whose Adoptianism probably arose out of this controversy. Migetius was condemned at synods at Seville in 782 and 785.
