Marcites or Marcitze

Marcites Or Marcitze a sect of heretics in the 2d century, who also called themselves the Perfecti, and made profession of doing everything with a great deal of liberty, and without fear. This doctrine they borrowed from Simon Magus, who, however, was not their chief; for they were called Marcites, from one Marcus, who conferred the priesthood and the administration of the sacraments on women.
