1 attests a Domnos who was the bishop of Caesarea in Palestine at the time of the pupils of Origen (th~j d' e0pi\ Palaisti/nhj Kaisarei/aj, Qeokti/stou metalla&cantoj, diade/xetai th_n e0piskoph_n Do&mnoj). 18 Domnos is attested as the bishop of Antioch in the second half of the third century (Do&mnoj, w(j ei1rhtai, th_n leitourgi/an th~j kata_ 0Antio&xeian e0kklhsi/aj diede/cato). A Domnus is attested as the father of a sophist who lived under Constantine (Callinicus, Test.

Since Bardaiṣan in his Domnus seems to have supported a similar view, it is probable that analogous consequences can be drawn concerning his anthropology and his eschatology. And indeed I shall argue that this is probably the case. I shall also show that accusations that were repeatedly leveled against him— often because of an undue association of him with Gnosticism— such as the denial of the resurrection or a docetic Christology, are probably unfounded. Bardaiṣan, I think, is likely to have entertained views that were closer to those of Origen than to those of the Gnostics, or even of the Manichaeans, who existed only after him.
