This is the first systematic presentation of the basic myth as reflected in Coptic material. The second part is a collection of essays on Manichaeism by Hans-Joachim Klimkeit. The essays are concerned, among other things, with Manichaean art and symbolism, including newly found examples of Manichaean art from Central Asia."
