Agapetse, or Agapeti
Agapetse, Or Agapeti, the name given to a branch of Gnostics which existed towards the end of the 4th century. According to Jerome, they consisted principally of women who attached themselves to young people, and taught them that nothing was impure with pious minds. One of their maxims was, that they were bound rather to perjure themselves than to reveal the secrets of their sect.- Landon, Eccles. Diet. s.v.
