Announcements

  • The Zotero library underlying the CEToM bibliography is now public and can be viewed here.
  • We would like to thank Prof. Dr. Thomas Oberlies and Pratik Rumde from the Seminar für Indologie und Tibetologie of the Georg-August-Universität Göttingen for providing our project with scans of the nachlass of Wilhelm Siegling. The nachlass includes letters to and from Siegling throughout his career that are of great importance to the history of the field of Tocharian studies. This material will be published on CEToM, accompanied by transcriptions of the letters, in the course of 2024.

Commentary

Remarks

The five small fragments THT 393.a-e belong to THT 391-392, which in turn belong to the same manuscript as THT 149ff. (as per Sieg and Siegling 1953: 259), but THT 391-393 do not contain Pratītyasamutpāda like the latter series. Fragments THT 393.b-e have only partly been edited by Sieg and Siegling 1953: 261 sub no. 393.
