This is an interactive, digital, online publication published by the University of Sydney. It contains an edition of a Gandhāran Buddhist manuscript that includes a transcription, translation, Sanskrit translation, full glossary, and text critical annotations. It was produced using READ software and READ Workbench. The image of the manuscript is linked to the text such that interacting with the text will highlight the corresponding parts of the manuscript, in effect allowing it to be “read” by non-specialists. This open source publishing format serves a pedagogical function as well as a documentary function.
