Item description for Emerging from Darkness: Studies in the Recovery of Manichaen Sources (Nag Hammadi and Manichaean Studies) by Jason BeDuhn & Paul Allan Mirecki...

Modern interpretation of the Manichaean religious tradition requires a firm foundation in the sober and meticulous reconstruction of highly fragmentary sources. The studies collected in this volume contribute to such a foundation by bringing new primary texts to the public for the first time, extracting new data from previously known sources, and defining and delimiting important but previously neglected sets of material. The studies are authored by an international group of leading scholars in the fields of ancient Mediterranean and Near Eastern studies, comparative religion, early Christianity, patristics, art history, Turkic studies and Coptology. The textual and art historical materials examined possess distinctive histories, character and significance representing the broad geographical range of Manichaeism from Algeria to China. By elucidating these essential remains of the Manichaean religion, the comprehensive treatments contained in "Emerging from Darkness" provide a provocative picture of Manichaeism as a diverse and productive tradition in a variety of settings and media. The volume will be foundational for future scholarly studies on the sources presented and for studies in Manichaeism and late antique religions in general.

Reviews - What do customers think about Emerging from Darkness: Studies in the Recovery of Manichaen Sources (Nag Hammadi and Manichaean Studies)?

Emerging from Darkness  Nov 7, 2009
Modern interpretation of the Manichaean religious tradition requires a firm foundation in the sober and meticulous reconstruction of highly fragmented sources. While the religion of Mani has suffered its share of premature academic judgment, it has for the most part avoided the more fantastic misreadings which continue to plague scholarship on the gnostic tradition and the Dead Sea Scrolls. Much of the international community of Manichaean scholars is focused on the recovery of the primary source materials and their interpretation, as well as the re-reading of classic source materials like Augustine.

The studies collected here are part of an ongoing, collective effort to restore one of the great palimpsests of human history. Except for isolated pockets which lingered on for a few more centuries, Manichaeism has been extinct for a thousand years. As we move forward in a new millennium we find Manichaeism emerging from darkness as a unique voice restored to the human story.
