The Silk Road has become world-famous among esthets for the wall-paintings of Tun-Huang and Afrasyab or the Bamyan Buddhas, and among philologists for the Old Turkic inscriptions or the Tocharian and Middle Iranian Manuscripts. But disappointingly few scholars have tried to make chronological, social and geographical distinctions among and between the communities and peoples who created these extremely diverse literatures and arts. The present book is an attempt to fill the gap between historical sketches in which the assumptions of Chinese or Arab annalists or of scholars from the dawn of the XXth Century are repeated uncritically and without even a reference to the sources, and the editions of primary material, which reach the historical implications at best incidentally. Hence there is a close association between the philological assessment and investigation of the sources and their historical interpretation. The philological side of the work is represented by the dialectal and chronological classification of the Sogdian, Tocharian and Old Turkic manuscripts based on palaeographic and linguistic criteria, the critical bibliography of the 32 languages from Serindia (from Greek or Hebrew to Chinese via well-known pals such as Zhang-zhung or Bactrian) or the list of all published Manichaean and Christian fragments classified according to the text to which they belonged. The present book is, however, also the first published history of Central Asiatic Manichaeism to study the circles from which the Manichaeans came, the political role they took and the theological and ethical attitudes they adopted. These particular questions have led to a reassessment of the whole religious, political and ethnical history of Central Asia between 500 and 1000 AD.

    Twenty-seven articles by prominent Indo-Europeanists, Indologists and Iranists have been selected to commemorate the most innovative and consequential exegete of Avesta (the missal of the pre-islamic Paniranian religion, Mazdaeism, or Parsism) of our times, Jean Kellens. They present debates around the oldest language and religious history of the common ancestors of Indians and Iranians. The themes Jean Kellens has put into fresh light - intertextuality, stylistics, ideology, textual history and reuse - are especially represented, but always under the light of the mother discipline: grammar. English, French and German text.
