This part of the Dictionary of Manichaean Texts covers all
extant Manichaean texts in Chinese from the Tang period and a large
number of excerpts on Manichaeism and the Manichaean church from
Chinese historical, institutional, literary and polemical sources.
The Dictionary of Manichaean Texts in Chinese contains
nearly 5,000 words and phrases, including Chinese words and
phrases, words transcribed from Middle Iranian and Aramaic, and
Buddhist/Indian words transcribed from Sanskrit. Entries are
generally given in standard characters (but includes manuscript
allographs) and in standard pinyin transcription. Definitions,
explanatory comments, and cross-references are provided, as well as
a lenghty English Index.
