Welcome to the IAMS!
The International Association of Manichaean Studies (IAMS) is a non-profit organization designed to foster the study of all aspects of Manichaeism and its relationship with other religious and philosophical currents. According to its Statutes, it shall:
All this sounds rather ambitiously and so it is actually meant. Since its establishment in 1989, the Association has indeed fostered the study of Manichaeism; promoted international cooperation among an increasing number of individual scholars and a considerable figure of reputed scientific bodies; disseminated the most recent information about work in progress and new discoveries; and, not least, as a lasting and most palpable proof of its activities a whole run of books has been published and will be brought to light in the near future.
Each individual and each institution with a research interest in Manichaeism is very welcome to join the IAMS; every person and every organization capable to foster the Associations activities in some way or another is kindly invited to do so!
