While in his own days Augustine was best known for his writings against the heretics (several dozen works refuting the heresies of the Manichaeans, Pelagians, Donatists, Arians, etc), in our times his most popular theological books are those on doctrine, such as On Christian Doctrine, On the Trinity, The City of God.

There are also many. Several Manichaean texts have been discovered this century: the Coptic texts from Medinet Medi in the Fayyum include a book of psalms, and the Greek ‘Mani codex’, a tiny papyrus volume, is an anthology on the birth and early life of Mani.

Manichaeism is an extreme form of dualistic gnosticism. It is gnostic because it promises salvation through the attainment of special knowledge of spiritual truths.

It is dualistic because it argues that the foundation of the universe is the opposition of two principles, good and evil, each equal in relative power. Manichaeism, dualistic religious movement founded in Persia in the 3rd century CE by Mani, who was known as the ‘Apostle of Light.’ Although Manichaeism was long considered a Christian heresy, it was a religion in its own right that preserved.

The original, but now lost, six sacred books of Manichaeism were composed in Syriac Aramaic, and translated into other languages to help spread the religion.

The prime sources for the study of Manichaeism are the so-called Turfan (Turpan) texts, named after the Dunhuang region where they were found in –5. These include fragments of Mani's long-lost bible and portions of Manichaean literature written in.

Especially he proves that the shame which accompanies lust is the just punishment of that disobedience, and inquires how man, if he had not sinned, would have been able without lust to propagate his kind.

In this alphabet the sacred books of the Manichaeans were written, even at a later period.
