The influence of Gnosticism and Manichaeism on Priscillianist doctrine, basing on Priscillianist and anti-Priscillianist sources

Krzysztof Sordyl

Abstrakt


The aim of this article is to discuss how the Priscilliann’s thought corresponds to Gnostic-Manichaean doctrine. There is no doubt that Priscillian in his writings presents himself as an expert on various heterodox movements of his time. The true sources of Priscillianism need to be sought at the metaphysical level.
