Orientalism and Franz Cumont (1868-1947): his views on “East” and “West” in the context of classical studies in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century
Abstract
Franz Cumont (1868-1947) was one of the leading historians of ancient religions in his time and he has influenced the field to this day. He is best known for his work on Mithras and the Oriental Religions in the Roman Empire but published more than 1000 items on a wide range of subjects. This volume collects all his publications on the history and the spread of Manichaeism. It is one of the seven thematic volumes of the Scripta Minora, the sub-series of the Bibliotheca Cumontiana, which edits his collected works. The book contains a critical historiographical introduction by the specialist of Manichaeism and oriental christianities, Michel Tardieu, who analyses the methodology Cumont used in the scientific context of his era, in particular with regard to the position of Manichaeism within the history of religions, and the links between Manichaeism, Zoroastrianism, the cult of Mithras and Christianity. Furthermore the introduction offers a bibliographical update which lists the most important publications which continued or renewed the work of Cumont. Researchers are offered both a thematic index and an index of ancient and modern authors.
