Chapter Summary

The seventh book of the canonical works ascribed to Mani, believed to have been composed in his mother tongue, an Aramaic dialect, appears to be, in the Coptic lists, a collection of prayers and two psalms. Although none of Mani's prayers can be identified, a caption in a Sogdian text in Sogdian script establishes that a long hymn-cycle called Wuzurgān ĀFrīwan "The Blessings of the Great Ones", was composed by Mani. The beginning of the Middle Persian version of the text can be found, after a preceding text with final formula and a blank line, in M379b, a tiny and narrow almost entirely preserved sheet.

Keywords: Middle Persian; Parthian; Wuzurgān Āfrīwan
