From Greek dokein, "to seem"; the belief that Jesus only seemed human. Because the Gnostics viewed the physical world as evil, they could not accept that Jesus was both fully divine and fully human; as such, most Gnostics were also docetists. Dan Brown's Da Vinci Code appeal to Gnostic sources for Jesus being a human prophet married to Mary Magdalene clearly contradicts historical facts. See also Cathari; Christology; Gnosticism.
