From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

In Christology, Psilanthropism is the view that Jesus was merely human. The expression "merely human" can refer either to Jesus' substance (nothing more than a man) or to his existence in time (no existence prior to his becoming a man), or both. The presumed etymology of "psilanthropism" stems from the Greek psilo (merely, only) and anthropos (man, human being).

Psilanthropism was rejected by the ecumenical councils, especially in the First Council of Nicaea, which was convened to deal directly with the nature of Christ's divinity.
