The Mythology of Manichaeism

Lecture no. 21 from the course: Gnosticism: From Nag Hammadi to the Gospel of Judas

The Mythology of Manichaeism

Taught by Professor David Brakke | 32 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Philosophy & Religion Courses

Historians have often depicted the religious movement of Manichaeism as the culmination of ancient Gnosticism.
