Homoiousianism (from the Greek: hómoios, "similar" and ousía, "essence, being") was a 4th century AD movement which arose in the early period of the Christian religion out of a wing of Arianism. It was an attempt to reconcile the seemingly irreconcilable views of the pro-Nicene homoousians, who believed that God the Father and Jesus his son were identical (homós) in substance, with the "neo-Arian" position that God the Father is "incomparable" and therefore the Son of God can not be described in any sense as "equal in substance or attributes" but only "like" (hómoios) the Father in some suborbinate sense of the term.
