Sunderman memorial volume on the Turfan manuscripts (etc.)

BIBLIOGRAPHIA IRANICA: Iranian, Manichaean and Central Asian Studies in Memoriam Sundermann. Notice of a new book: Einem Team „Turfanforschung“. 2017. Zur lichten Heimat. Studien zu Manichäismus, Iranistik und Zentralasienkunde im Gedenken an Werner Sundermann. (Iranica 25). Wiesbaden: Harrassowitz Verlag. Despite the title, most of the chapters are in English.

PaleoJudaica has some interest in the Middle Iranian fragments discovered at Turfan, mostly because they included material from the Book of Giants. Matthew Goff has an article on the subject in this book.

Past posts on the fragments of the Book of Giants from Turfan are here and links. And other past posts on Turfan are here and here and links.
