Subtitle: Fragen zur Übersetzung von manichäischen Texten
Edited By: Jens Peter Laut
Klaus Röhrborn
Series Title: De Gruyter Abhandlungen der Akademie der Wissenschaften zu Göttingen. Neue Folge 29

Manichaeism wanted to become a world religion. Thus, the problem of translating the Holy Scriptures was of paramount importance. The twelve studies in this volume examine the linguistic and cultural diversity and unique features of the translated texts of Eastern Manichaeism. This book will be of great interest to scholars of religious studies and to researchers in the fields of cultural history and language contact.
