The Sogdians

BIBLIOGRAPHIA IRANICA: The Sogdians. Notice of an online exhibition: The Sogdians: Influencers on the Silk Roads, by the Freer Gallery of Art and Arthur M. Sackler Gallery, Smithsonian Institution.

The Sogdians are of interest to PaleoJudaica because they preserved the Book of Giants in one or more translations into their language. Fragments of the Sogdian Book of Giants survive today. For more on the Sogdians and their language ("Sogdian"), see here and links (cf. here).
