Title: Manichaeism in Recent Studies
Author(s): VAN TONGERLOO, A.
Journal: Ephemerides Theologicae Lovanienses
Volume: 67 Issue: 1 Date: April 1991
In 1988 Julien Ries published an excellent handbook on Manichaeism. This volume offers a useful introduction to the Manichaeological research in its historical development and to the modern reappraisal of the study of this extinct world religion. Apart from this status quaestionis, furnished with a copious apparatus, the author discusses the exegetical position of Augustine and Mani towards the Bible. This major publication provides the framework of the present survey, which will deal only with the study of the primary material (and not with the secondary sources, as, e.g., Patristic or Muslim authors, etc.)
