Ryzhenkov S. Manuscripts of the Mahāparinirvāṇa-mahāsūtra from Dunhuang: Preliminary Arrangement According to its Scroll Division // Written Monuments of the Orient. 1(3), 2016. P. 21–34.


The paper considers one of the methods of manuscript classification applied to the Chinese translation of Mahāparinirvāṇa-mahāsūtra from Dunhuang. Given the fact that the beginnings and endings of some scrolls of its different versions do not correspond, researchers identify several types of scroll division (fen juan 分卷). This paper attempts to reconstruct one of these types based on Daboniepanjing chao 大般涅槃經鈔 (“Digests of the Mahāparinirvāṇa-mahāsūtra”) manuscripts from Dunhuang.
