Satanians a branch of the Messalians, who appeared about A.D. 390. They derived their name from the theory which they are alleged to have held, that the power of Satan over men makes it right for them to pray that he will not exercise it to their harm. This opinion seems to be the same as that on which the worship of the Yezedees (q.v.) is grounded.
