How to use "Manichaeism" in context?

Manichaeism was one of the most radical and influential religions of the Early Middle Ages. It was founded by Mani, a prophet in the Iranian province of Persia (now Iran) in the century between 224 and 216 A.D.

Mani's teachings were based on the belief that there was one supreme God, called the Light of the World, who was the only source of true virtue and happiness. Manichaeism opposed all forms of physical, moral and religious Hubris, arguing that true understanding and enlightenment could only be achieved through humility and surrender to the Divine.
