This essay, for the first time, analyzes one of Augustine’s sermons in order to find out to what extent he was acquainted with Mani and his teachings. Once again it turns out that the former Manichaean auditor was very well acquainted with Manichaean belief and practice. One piece of data in sermo 182, sc. that Manichaeans could make polemical use of the expression Libera nos a malo in the Lord’s prayer, even seems unique.
