Resumo

VAN OORT, Johannes. Manichaeism: Its sources and influences on western Christianity. Verbum Eccles. (Online) [online]. 2009, vol.30, n.2, pp. 126-130. ISSN 1609-9982.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4102/ve.v30i2.362.

The aim of this paper is twofold. First, it will discuss the origins of Manichaeism, a gnostic-Christian world religion that was founded by the prophet Mani (216-276). My discussion of the origins of Manichaeism may serve as an excellent example to illustrate what 'Gnosis' or 'Gnosticism' actually was. Second, the paper will outline how Manichaeism, being an alternative form of Christianity and even an alternative Christian Church, seemed to have exercised a considerable influence on Catholic Christianity.

Palavras-chave : gnostic-Christian; Futtuq; asceticism; Codex Manichaicus Coloniensis; Mani.
