Walravens H. Omens in Celestial Phenomena. On a Manchu Manuscript // Written Monuments of the Orient. 1(1), 2015. P. 87–97.


In ancient times the peoples of Central Asia and China considered natural phenomena a reaction of the Heaven to their deeds. The article introduces the unique Manchu manuscript from the Gest Library, Princeton University, which deals with the interpretation of celestial signs. Since the manuscript is written entirely in Manchu, similar Chinese texts on solar and lunar omens are presented as well.
