(Apollinarios; Apollinarius; the Younger; ca. 310ca. 390). Son of Apollinaris the Elder, a grammarian of Beirut. B. Laodicea, on the Syrian coast, S of Antioch; bp. Laodicea ca. 360. Opposed Arianism* but fell into the error that Christ had the Logos* instead of a human soul; his teaching (Apollinarianism) was regarded by some as really Docetic (see Docetism) and was condemned by the 381 Council of Constantinople.* When Emp. Julian* forbade Christians to use pagan classics, Apollinarius and his father cast much of the Bible in classic form. Followers called Apollinarians.
