Item Description...
The present volume offers twelve studies dealing with feminine figures in Gnosticism and Manichaeism.

In Part One ("Images et symboles"), the Author unveils the hidden meaning of some feminine figures having played a role on the mythical scene of those trends. Some of these figures, borrowed from other traditions, have been deeply reworked by Gnostics or Manichees assuming thereby a new significance. An intermezzo ("Passages") investigates the presence of women names in titles preserved in the Nag Hammadi Library and the relationship between a female protagonist and a specific literary genre.

Part Two ("Histoire et ralit") reconstructs the portraits of some women, especially Manichaean, to whom the historical inquiry gives life again, thanks to a fresh reading of first hand sources, as well of heresiological or archeological testimonies.

Some of these studies have been previously published and have now been significantly updated and expanded. Some others are lectures on Feminine in Gnosticism and Manichaeism given by the Author in Sorbonne, Paris, since 1994.
Les douze tudes que rassemble ce volume abordent sous diffrentes facettes le personnage de la femme dans la gnose et dans le manichisme. Dans la premire partie ( Images et symboles ), l'Auteur dvoile la signification cache de quelques figures fminines qui ont jou un rle sur la scne du mythe. Si les auteurs gnostiques et manichens ont emprunt certaines d'entre elles d'autres traditions, ils ont toutefois remodel ces figures en profondeur en les chargeant d'une nouvelle signification. La deuxime partie ( Passages ) s'interroge sur la prsence de noms fminins dans les titres conservs de la bibliothque de Nag Hammadi et sur la relation ventuelle entre une protagoniste fminine et le choix d'un genre littraire. La troisime partie ( Histoire et ralit ) reconstruit les portraits de quelques femmes, surtout manichennes, dont les traits effacs se prcisent grce une lecture originale de la documentation directe et des sources hrsiologiques, grce aussi l'apport de l'archologie.

Une partie de ces tudes, publie auparavant, parat ici sous une forme largement amplifie. D'autres reprennent les thmes de confrences sur la femme dans le manichisme, donnes par l'Auteur la Sorbonne entre 1997 et 2002.
