Themistians an early school of theorists which took its name from a deacon, Themistius. An answer given him by the patriarch Timothy led him to conclude that if the body of Christ was corruptible (subject, that is, to the decay arising from the wear and tear of life), then he must also have been so far subject to the defects of human nature that his very knowledge of the present and the future was imperfect, and there were, therefore, some things of which he was ignorant. The patriarch himself repudiated this conclusion, but a school of theorists grew up under the leadership of Themistius, and became known as AGNOETE SEE AGNOETE (q.v.).
