Charles Häberl has started blogging again recently, about the Mandaean Book of John and related texts, in a series of truly fascinating blog posts. I’d like to highlight a few of them here.
The one that got me most excited is the one which makes sense of lines in the Mandaean Book of John which Mark Lidzbarski took to be references to “Christ-Paul.”
A second post explores the concept of Mšunia Kušṭa, the Mandaean paradise whose name may mean “Truth’s Barrier” or, less literally, “Fortress of Truth” or “Stronghold of Truth.”
If you aren’t following the blog Philologastry, clearly you should be!
