Reviews - What do customers think about Studies in Manichaean Literature and Art (Nag Hammadi and Manichaean Studies)?

Studies in Manichaean Literature and Art  Nov 7, 2009
The objective of this work is to be seen by its presentation of the Manichaean myth according to the Coptic sources from Medinet Madi, which form a spatio-temporal unity. More precisely, it is the aim of this work to take as its starting point the Coptic sources, and from there to expound the basic axioms of the teachings and the course of mythic events, as well as to present the figures of the gods and their functions in myth. Such a total presentation of the Manichaean myth as it is reflected in the Coptic sources has not previously been attempted, although there is certainly a wealth of individual investigations of the Coptic Manichaica with reference to selected problems and concrete questions.
