Apparently, an obscure Christian heresy, which says that:
"Since the Father and the Son are both God, they are both one, so the Father also sufferred upon the cross"

Doubtless deeply shocking at the time, I do find myself having to ask "And why did anyone care?"  --Vitenka

Sigh. Certainly at the moment I care *more* about the fact that the word was Patripassionism. MaintainMe. --AC
Ooops! :)  That is indeed a longer and better WordOfTheDay.  The web seems happy with PatriPassionism? being the heresy of belief in PatriPassion, though.  --Vitenka
(PeterTaylor) Without any knowledge on the specific subject, I'd guess the date of this heresy to be AD 300-400. The issue of the relationships within the Trinity was very important then - witness the row over filioque.
Umm, the filioque row was very little about the filioque, and lots about church governence.  Granted there is a theological position there; but it's not as big as it looks. -- Senji
(PeterTaylor) I deliberately veered shy of blaming the GreatSchism? on filioque. But to further make my point, I'll throw in Sabellianism, Docetism, Monophysitism, Adoptionism, Nestorianism, Apollinarianism, Arianism, Socianism.
Ah! Nestorian! "Get home, otherwise Scotsman finds heretic (9)"! You've just finished yesterday's DailyTelegraph cryptic crossword for me!
