Nomʹinalists

.

A sect founded by Roscelin, Canon of Compiègne (1040–1120). He maintained that if the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost are one God, they cannot be three distinct persons, but must be simply three names of the same being; just as father, son, and husband are three distinct names of one and the same man under different conditions. Abélard, William Occam, Buridan, Hobbes, Locke, Bishop Berkeley, Condillac, and Dugald Stewart are the most celebrated disciples of Roscelin. (See Realists.)
