Catalogue of Sanskrit Manuscripts

Early Acquisitions and the Nepal Collection

This first-ever catalogue of the Danish National Library's rich Sanskrit holdings analyses and describes three of the manuscript collections held by the library. The first comprises both palm-leaf and paper manuscripts, most written in either Bengali, Telugu or Sinhalese script. The second is mostly written in Bengali script on locally produced country paper and focuses on Ayurvedic medicine. The third and largest collection originates from Nepal and is highly heterogenous in nature. Together these comprise a rich offering to philologists, anthropologists and historians of religion, art and iconography.
