Manichaean Turkic texts in the Ōtani Collection of the Library of Ryūkoku University

ZIEME, P. Manichaean Turkic texts in the Ōtani Collection of the Library of Ryūkoku University. 大谷探検隊収集西域胡語文献論叢, 45. Link

Intro:

There is a small collection of more than 50 Old Uigur fragments of Manichaean contents in the Ōtani Collection of the Library of the Ryūkoku University. Some of them were studied and edited before, some not. Here, I would like to give a survey of these materials including editions of those that have remained unstudied so far. Because of the small size of some of them, it is difficult to give a definite identification.

 

A paper looking at documents written in Old Uyghur, one of the ancestors of the current Uyghurs. (Manichaeism is a religion).
