A review of a catalog and part-edition of Old Turkic manuscripts in Brahmi script.
What is it about?
My paper is about a book which describes and edits Buddhist Old Turkic manuscripts from the Silk Road, where Indian, Chinese and Western cultures and religions met in the Middle Ages and created a fused culture.
Why is it important?
These particular manuscripts are written in Brahmi or in Tibetan writing, which shows Old Turkic pronunciation very well. In this way they make a very important contribution to our knowledge of Old Turkic.
