The Holy Order of MANS (or HOOM) was a religious cult that started in the 1960s. The founder was an ex-engineer named Earl Blighton. MANS is an acronym for the greek words:

  • Mysterion
  • Agape
  • Nous
  • Sophia

After denouncing the heresy involved with the religious movement, many of its members and hierarchy have joined the Orthodox Church. A thorough Orthodox explanation of the journey of the Holy Order of MANS and Christ the Saviour Brotherhood can be read in Again, Vol. 23, No. 1, January-March 2001, pp. 23-26

Some of the existing congregations that include former members/clergy of the Holy Order of MANS include:

Several religious cults still exist today because of the influence of HOOM.
