Zieme P. Maitreya and the Religious Situation according to Two Old Uighur Poems of Yuan Dynasty. Edition of SI 4485 and SI 4958 // Pis'mennye pamiatniki Vostoka. Vol. 18, no. 3 (46), 2021, pp. 5–16.


This paper offers the edition of SI 4485 and SI 4958, two manuscripts of the Old Uighur section of the Serindia Collection of the IOM written in alliterating verses.
