The Christian Mediaeval Iranian Codicology: an Unexplored Territory


The Christianisation of large parts of central and south-central Asia goes back to the latter part of the fourth century reaching – at the latest from the beginning of the eighth century – the Turfan oasis, as testified by the discovery of Christian texts coming from the ruins of the monastery of Shüī-pang near Bulayïq, approximately ten kilometres north of Turfan. The article focuses on the Sogdian tradition.
