Ascodroutes, in antiquity, were a sect of Christian heretics in the 2nd century, who rejected all use of sacraments, on the principle that incorporeal things cannot be communicated by things visible and corporeal. They made perfect redemption consist in the knowledge of the universe (Theodoret, lib. 1. Haereticarum fabularum compendium).
