Revisiting the Mandaeans and the New Testament (Article)
Title: Revisiting the Mandaeans and the New Testament
Author: J.F. McGrath
Abstract: The Mandaeans have been known to scholars for as long as there has been modern scholarship. Thanks to advances in technology, you can now find some of their ancient texts online, and videos of their baptismal rituals on YouTube. Yet as fascinating as the Mandaeans are, and as much as modern technologies can facilitate greater familiarity with them, the amount of attention that they receive is surprisingly sparse – although there are encouraging signs that that is at least beginning to change.

Mandaeism in Antiquity and the Antiquity of Mandaeism (Article)
Title: Mandaeism in Antiquity and the Antiquity of Mandaeism
Author: C.G. Haberl
Abstract: The evidence for a history of Mandaeism during the period of Late Antiquity (3rd–8th c. CE) and its evolution as a religious tradition prior to and immediately following the advent of Islam is surveyed. This evidence includes the Mandaean manuscript tradition, the testimony of outside witnesses, and the corpus of incantation texts from Late Antique Mesopotamia. It is noted that the study of this evidence has typically been subsumed under the study of related traditions, and that it could bene?t from a reassessment. The issues addressed include Mandaeism’s relationship to other religions, such as Judaism, Zoroastrianism, Christianity, and Manichaeism, the antiquity and authenticity of its traditions, and the extent of Islamic in?uence upon them.

Tense, Aspect, and Mood in the Doctrine of John (Article)
Title: Tense, Aspect, and Mood in the Doctrine of John
Author: C.G. Haberl
Abstract: On a foundation of earlier research using qualitative cues (e.g. references to the Islamic conquest or historical events that subsequently happened), I propose to establish the outline of a relative chronology of the texts that were eventually redacted into the Mandaean Book of John (Draša ?-Iahia), one of the central texts of the Mandaean scriptural canon. Among the features to be analyzed are the frequencies of the predicative uses of the active participle in place of the imperfect (e.g. abid ana “I am doing” = Impf. ebud) and the passive participle with the preposition l- in place of the perfect (e.g. ebid li “I have done” = Perf. abdit).
