Chapter Summary

This appendix section of the book titled Pentadic Redaction in the Manichaean Kephalaia presents the translation from Theodore bar Khonai's Syriac Liber scholiorum. It is the most important secondary witness to how Mani likely conceived of his own cosmogonic myth, especially in terms of Syriac terminology. The book identifies a significant redactional tendency whereby the compilers of the Kephalaia sought to clarify ambiguities in "canonical" Manichaean tradition by means of five-part numerical series, thereby challenging the conventional wisdom of Manichaean scholarship about the consistency of Manichaean doctrine.

Keywords:Manichaean Kephalaia; Theodore bar Khonai
