Chapter Summary

In this chapter, the author analyses the question, if Adimantus depended on Marcion when he wrote his Disputationes, what should be regarded as specifically Manichaean in the Disputationes? The texts in the quotations are examined in detail. It has been observed that Augustine sometimes criticize Adimantus' reproduction of a biblical passage, because he knew another form of the text. They are examined along with other Adimantus' quotations from Scripture. The task undertaken has been to describe Adimantus' treatment of the quotations from both the Old and New Testament by means of examining the variations that can be found in Adimantus' rendering of the texts. In the third section the possible origin and the implications of Adimantus's writing method will be discussed. In the fourth section, the Old Testament themes that Adimantus criticized in the Disputationes are the main point to be discussed. The last section is the summary of results.

Keywords: Adimantus; Augustine; Disputationes; Manichaean; Marcion; New Testament; Old Testament
