Lundysheva O., Turanskaya A. Old Uyghur Fragments in the Serindia Collection: Provenance, Acquisition and Processing // Written Monuments of the Orient. Vol. 6, No. 2(12), 2020. P. 43—64.


The earliest findings of the Old Uyghur manuscripts and block prints were brought to Europe by the Russian expeditions. A number of the Old Uyghur fragments were found by Dmitrii Klementz in the course of the Turfan expedition in 1889–1890. These fragments, along with the manuscripts in other languages and scripts, were subsequently acquired by the Russian offi cials Nikolai Petrovskii and Nikolai Krotkov and the expeditions headed by Sergei Oldenburg (1909–1910; 1914–1915) and Sergei Malov (1909–1911; 1913–1914). They formed the Serindia (formerly known as Central Asian) Collection kept nowadays at the IOM, RAS. The major part of the Serindia Collection consists of the Old Uyghur fragments. Obtained by the expeditions to Eastern Turkestan, according to the customary tradition they were transferred to the Asiatic Museum. This paper presents the results of our recent study of the provenance, aquisition and processing history of the Old Uyghur manuscripts and block prints.
