Alekseev K., Turanskaya A., Yampolskaya N. Mongolian Golden Kanjur Fragments in the Collection of the IOM, RAS // Written Monuments of the Orient. 1(3), 2016. P. 85–105.


The collection of the IOM, RAS contains a number of odd folios from the Mongolian Kanjur, the history of whose entry into the collection is unknown. The text is written in golden ink on blue paper. Handwriting and orthography are characteristic of the first half of the 17th c. Appearance and ductus reveal a striking similarity to the Golden Kanjur of Ligdan Khan kept in Hohhot. In the article the folios from IOM, RAS are compared with the Golden Kanjur. An attempt to trace back the history of these manuscript fragments leads to the conclusion that they could be among the first Mongolian manuscripts brought to St. Petersburg at the time of Peter the Great.
