#301 – A History of the Catholic Church – The New Prophecy


As the Christian Church grew both in numbers and in its geographical scope, so did differences among believers also increase. Some of these differences will be minor, others will be significant enough that they will cause splits among the faithful.

The Montantists, or the New Prophecy, emphasized the importance of the Holy Spirit in the lives of the faithful but their strict morality, their charismatic practices, and the role of women in their movement will cause conflict with magisterial leadership and end in accusations of heresy against them.
