      Manichaeism is a Gnostic religion that focuses on salvation by knowledge. The battle between God and Satan created humanity, the world, and the soul as a byproduct. Humans serve as the battleground, as the soul is believed to contain both the light of God and the dark of : Mrreese. The Manichaean body: in discipline and ritual. [Jason BeDuhn] -- Reconstructing Manichaeism from scraps of ancient texts and the ungenerous polemic of its enemies (such as the ex-Manichaean Augustine of Hippo), BeDuhn reveals for the first time the religion as it.

    The title of BeDuhn's work suggests a study of Manichaean anthropogenesis or asceticism or the Mani's equation of parts of the human body with those of the Zodiac in the Coptic Kephalaia. The book certainly touches on these issues, but more importantly it is a thorough, and sometimes exhaustive, study of the place of the sacred meal for the Elect in Manichaean doctrine, especially in Eastern Manichaean texts.
