Abstract The article examines the conspicuous references to God’s ‘Right Hand’ in Manichaeism by analysing texts from both Western and Eastern sources. The analysed texts prove that the eye-catching imagery (directly or indirectly) refers to Christ. Perhaps this imagery of Christ as God’s Right Hand also had its place in Manichaean art. The article aims to function as background for a subsequent study of Augustine’s portrayal of Christ as manus or dextera Dei in his Confessions.
