Ascophites

Ascophites were a sect of the heretics, also called Archontici, who appeared about 173. They broke the sacred vessels in churches in hatred of the oblation; rejected the Old Test., and denied the use of' good works, pretending that it sufficed to know God. They also believed that each sphere of the universe was governed by an angel (Theodoret, Hasret. Fab. I, x).
