The Mandaeans : ancient texts and modern people by Jorunn Jacobsen Buckley( )
16 editions published between 2002 and 2004 in English and held by 542 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Annotation The Mandaeans are a Gnostic sect that arose in the middle east around the same time as Christianity. What little study of the religion there has been has focused on the ancient Mandaeans and their relation to early Christianity. Buckley examines the lives and religion of contemporaryMandaeans, who live mainly in Iran and Iraq but also in New York and San Diego. She provides a comprehensive introduction to the religion and shows how its ancient texts inform the living religion, and vice versa
Lady E.S. Drower's scholarly correspondence an intrepid English autodidact in Iraq by E. S Drower( )
7 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 512 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"An edition of the scholarly letters of the English Lady E.S. Drower, famous for her novels, travel accounts, and studies in the Middle East, especially on the Mandaeans. Drower (1879-1972) kept up a lively correspondence with scholars, and the letters here span the years 1938 to the mid-1960s. It presents a window on Near Eastern studies in the mid-20th century, from the viewpoint of an autodidact insisting on-and succeeding in- a place among the academics. Correspondence with many famous scholars and intellectuals are included, such as Cyrus H. Gordon, Rudolf Macuch, Sidney H. Smith, Godfrey R. Driver, Samuel H. Hooke, and Franz Rosenthal. The letters focus on four of Lady Drower's main books: The Book of the Zodiac (1949), Water into Wine (1956), A Mandaic Dictionary (with Rudolf Macuch, 1963), and Drower's hoped-for, crowning achievement: the presumably lost, large ms. : Mass and Masiqta."--Publisher's website

Christian origins ( Book )
1 edition published in 2007 in German and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Dealing with a time when followers of Jesus were moving toward separation from the movement's Jewish origins, this volume of A People's History of Christianity tells "the people's story" by gathering together evidence from the New Testament texts, archaeology, and other contemporary sources. Of particular interest are the often-overlooked aspects of the earliest "Christian" consciousness: How, for example, did they manage to negotiate allegiances to two social groups? How did they deal with crucial issues of wealth and poverty? What about the participation of slaves and women in these communities? How did living in the shadow of the Roman empire color their religious experience and economic values?
