Chapter Summary

This chapter begins with the numerical series 89.3 and ends with 89.17. The role played by numbers in religion is largely unexplored territory. While the Kephalaia may present itself as a record of Manichaean oral tradition based on Mani's discourses to his inner circle, it is essentially the product of later theological developments and elaborations that seek to respond to a wide array of specific questions, many of which appear to be rooted in ambiguities found in the canon.

Keywords: Kephalaia; religion; Manichaean oral tradition
