The article presents a brief review of a relatively small collection of
manuscripts and xylographs in the Tibetan, Mongolian and Oirat languages from the
Kazan Theological Academy fund, the State Archive of the Republic of Tatarstan.
Although the collection is quite moderate it includes really interesting materials and has
not attracted the attention of researchers. Its brief catalogue was made by the authors.
On October 30, 2017, at the Far Eastern Studies Seminar organized by the Department of Far Eastern Studies of the IOM RAS, I.V. Belaya will submit her presentation Taoist Sisters: The History of Nunnery of the Quanzhen School.
