              Hello,

              I was talking to Amir at the Malta conference and he encouraged me to send in a paper proposal for the November CSSS Symposium. Since the deadline is today, here is my proposal:

              Scribal Practices in the Turfan Monastic Community

              Amongst the more than 40,000 manuscript fragments in over 20 languages and scripts brought back from Turfan, China in the early 20th century to Berlin are more than 1100 fragments of Christian texts in Syriac, Sogdian, Uyghur and New Persian. These texts were produced in a monastic community that was part of the ecclesiastical network of the Church of the East that stretched along the Silk Road in the medieval period, from the Middle East through to China.

               

              These manuscript fragments offer tantalizing insights into the nature of Syriac Christianity in this eastern outpost of the Christian faith between the 9th and 13th centuries. This talk will examine some of the scribal practices that are evident in the manuscript fragments, looking at paleography, punctuation, vocalisation and other pointing, rubrics, marginalia, quire marks, corrections, distinguishing marks and illustrations, as well as examples of scribal exercises and a comparison of some of the more important hands evident amongst the Christian fragments in Syriac script.


              Thank you for considering my proposal,
              Mark Dickens
