Montanus



Who was Montanus?

Montanus lived in the second century after Christ. He was a nomad who traveled around present-day Turkey and preached messages he claimed came directly from the Holy Spirit. At times he even spoke as if he were God. Two women traveled with Montanus, Prisca and Maximilla. Prisca preached that Christ revealed himself to her as a woman. When she was excommunicated from the church she said, “I am driven away like the wolf from the sheep. I am no wolf; I am word and spirit and power.” The movement Montanus started died out in a few generations.
