Abstract

VIALE, ADRIÁN. S0ME CONSIDERATIONS ON THE HISTORIOGRAPHICAL CONCEPTUALIZATION OF THE MANICHAEAN RELIGIOUS TRADITION. Byzantion nea hellás [online]. 2012, n.31, pp.145-168. ISSN 0718-8471.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-84712012000100008.

The aim of this article is to reflect upon the complications which the historians have faced when trying to characterize Manichaeism. In the first place, we will identify, as an example of this, different characterizations that have been made throughout history. In the second place, we will propose a possible solution which avoids the attempt of confering an exclusive identity and which incorporates the temporal and regional differences of the Manichaean religious tradition.

Keywords : Manichaeism; Historiography; Byzantine religious history; Persian religious history; Manichaean sources.
