Nontrinitarian theological teaching attributed to Arius, in which Christ was created by and is distinct from God the Father.

Arianism is a nontrinitarian belief holding that Jesus, though the Son of God, is a created being and is therefore subordinate to and distinct from God the Father. It was attributed to Arius (c. AD 250–336) and rejected as a heresy at the council of Nicaea.
