Philosophical Aspects of Manichean and its Influence on Manichean Art
Saba Latifpour *
Abstract:   (6400 Views)
Manichean is a religion with many written works and few remaning visual resources or art works. Although the manichean works of art are scarce in number, they are important and noteworthy works. Through obtaining adequate information about manichean beliefs and analysing manichean art, it is possible to observe the reflection of main ideas of the religion in its art. Some of the principal elements of the manichean beliefs are obviously visible in manichen art. Art works of the mentioned religion, as any other art work, have been created upon a specific idea to express particular thoughts and impressions, and decoding and interpreting them based on manichean doctrine to find the ideas behind them is a fundamental work in order to understanding manichean art.
Keywords: Manichean, art, influence, wisdom, thought, belief
