The study of women in Manichaeism is still in its infancy. The present essay aims to contribute to this promising field of research by concentrating on the writings of the former Manichaean Augustine. A considerable number of data emerge from his works elucidating the presence and role of Manichaean women in Roman North Africa. It turns out that Augustine came into contact with female Manichaeans at quite different stages of his life and valued their significance very differently.
