Manichaeism by Michel Tardieu( Book )

30 editions published between 1980 and 2008 in 5 languages and held by 386 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Manichaeism, once the state religion of Persia and long a vigorous contender for converts throughout the ancient Near East, is best remembered for the simplicity of its teachings about divine power. For Manicheans, the universe was ruled by a Lord of Light and a Lord of Darkness, who fought continuously for supremacy. All that was good was a gift from the Lord of Light, and all that was evil was an affliction visited upon the universe by the Lord of Darkness. This dualism extended to cosmogony and ethics, splitting the universe into a spiritual realm that acted on the goodness of the human soul and a material realm that abetted the evil of the human body. These stark oppositions mask a remarkable degree of doctrinal and liturgical complexity, the details of which have been obscured by centuries of suppression and persecution, first by the Christian church, then by Islam." "One of the world's foremost experts on ancient religions, Michel Tardieu examines the fragmentary sources that have come down to us, pieces together the life and teachings of the prophet Mani (the itinerant Persian preacher and founder of this long lost faith), illuminates Manichaeism's ecclesiastical hierarchy and distinctive moral code, and investigates its ideas about the prelife and afterlife. Manichaeism provides a brilliantly compact survey of what was once one of the world's great faiths and then became one of its great heresies, surviving now only as a shadowy presence haunting the religions that superseded it."--BOOK JACKET

Autorité des auteurs antiques : entre anonymat, masque et authenticité( Book )

5 editions published in 2014 in French and held by 42 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Les études réunies dans le volume posent la question de la place de l'auteur dans l'Antiquité et de comprendre d'où émanait l'autorité d'une œuvre. Il n'est pas certain qu'il faille renoncer, dans le cas de la littérature ancienne, aux notions d'originalité, de style en tant que singularité ou expression propre de l'auteur, ou d'autonomie du littéraire. Dans la dialectique invention-fidélité au modèle, le mérite d'un auteur consistait à promouvoir une variante surprenante d'une histoire pourtant notoire, quoique peu répandue dans l'espace où il l'implante précisément et l'adapte. L'originalité consistait à rejoindre le dénouement connu par une voie inédite. À défaut de toujours pouvoir retrouver la trace des auteurs réels de certains écrits anciens, surtout de ceux dont l'œuvre s'est vue attribuer une autorité de norme collective, à défaut de savoir d'où ils venaient et quelle était l'expérience qu'ils ont vécue ou l'histoire réelle qu'ils ont mise en mots, les contributions de ce volume s'interrogent sur le rapport des auteurs de textes religieux, mythologiques ou littéraires aux valeurs qui firent autorité ou qui sont à l'origine de leur autorité
