Presentation Activity

The activities of the HISTOCHTEXT project consist in particular in publishing relevant information on the history of Buddhist and secular manuscripts, mainly in Sanskrit and Tocharian, kept in the Pelliot collection of the National Library of France (Bibliothèque nationale de France). This information concerns the language, the manuscript traditions, the written culture,j and the history of Buddhism in the broad sense. The essential part of the work will be accessible under the sections of the site relating to manuscripts. The project also involves exchanges and meetings with colleagues who work on the same sources, in different institutions (libraries, museums, research centers). Meetings in the form of conferences, workshops and seminars will be listed under the "activities" (News) page of the menu. Information on publications will also be accessible through this page. In addition, exhibitions of manuscripts, artistics works and artefacts pertaining to Central Asia and the history of Buddhism will be indicated by the same link.
