Corpus Fontium Manichaeorum

Corpus Fontium Manichaeorum

This project, sponsored by UNESCO and the UAI (Union Academique Internationale) aims to produce 60+ volumes of Manichaean texts from Egypt and Central Asia, edited by Professor Sam Lieu and international collaborators. The Manichaeans, who were disciples of Mani, the third century 'apostle of Jesus Christ', spread from Mesopotamia both West and East across the Silk Road. The texts studied are multilingual - Latin, Greek, Syriac, Middle Iranian, Turkish and Chinese.
