Item Description...
This is the second volume of scholarly studies in Manichaeism which were originally presented before the Manichaean Studies Group of the Society of Biblical Literature from 1997 through 1999. Like its predecessor, "Emerging from Darkness: Studies in the Recovery of Manichaean Sources" (Brill, 1997), this volume presents the latest international scholarship from leading researchers in the growing field of Manichaean studies. Here the researchers move from the continuing foundational work of recovering Manichaean sources to the necessary task of understanding the relationship of Manichaeans to the larger world in which they lived. That relationship took several distinct forms, and the contributions in this book analyze those forms, examining the relationship of Manichaeism with diverse cultural, social and religious traditions.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
The Light and the Darkness  Nov 7, 2009
It is in the nature of the scarce Manichaean sources currently available that all of these studies are partial, preliminary and, in some cases, seminal. The field of Manichaean studies is characterized by, indeed dominated by, fragmentary text and fragmentary art, accumulated data with problematic gaps, and ancient testimonies which are biased, ambiguous and often contradictory. The contributors to this volume, even in the recognized diversity of their approaches and interests, share an optimism and a determination to proceed to the questions one would ask about any religious tradition, and to rise to the challenges offered by problematic sources. These studies exhibit a cautious and conservative attitude toward interpretation so that questions can be asked and answers can be elicited which provide a secure base for future investigations, as the story of Manichaeism and its relationship to its world continues to emerge.
