ARABIANS (Lat. Arabici): A name given by Augustine (Hær., lxxxiii.) to sectaries in Arabia, mentioned by Eusebius (Hist. eccl., vi 37), who says that they held that the human soul dies with the body and will rise with it on the Day of Resurrection. Origen combated this opinion at an Arabian synod about 246. Consult Walch, Historie der Ketzereien, ii 167-171; E. R. Redepenning, Origines, ii. (Bonn, 1846) 105 sqq.
