Edited by Rainer Voigt
In addition to the proceedings of the two International Conference of Mandaic Studies held so far, both hosted in Berlin in 2003 and 2008, we offer new texts published in critical editions from the vast, hitherto untapped reservoir of Mandaic literature. Each text is accompanied by a transcription, a translation and an extensive comment. The original Mandaic text is always attached to allow verification of the transcription. Special regard is paid to how the texts are embedded in Mandaean theology and ritual practices which have not yet been researched adequately. Apart from text editions we also include general contributions to language, religion and literature which bear witness to an increasing interest in this last Gnostic religious community still existing.
