This paper offers a description, analysis and identification of some Dunhuang and Turfan manuscripts in the Pelliot Collection at the Bibliothèque nationale de France, the Stein Collection at the British Library and the Turfan Chinese Collection at the Berlin–Brandenburgische Akademie der Wissenschaften. The contents of these manuscripts were previously unidentified, especially due to the fragmentary state of some of the texts.
Among the discoveries of excavations carried out by a joint team of Chinese archaeologists between the autumn of 2010 and the early summer of 2011 in the Tuyoq Grottoes in Turfan, 22 pilgrim inscriptions in Old Uyghur script were found in the Northern Cave 10 (NK 10). All of them are notes made by Buddhists who made a pilgrimage to the cave. Although the photo of these inscriptions has been published twice in recent years, an edition of them is still missing. This paper presents results of philological investigation on 20 of these pilgrim inscriptions. One inscription is briefly discussed in the general description as its structure is difficult to recognise, whereas an edition of another inscription, the one on the upper side of the left wall, is reserved for further research, as the inscription is not clearly visible in the available photo.

As the first station in Central Asia of Xuanzang’s India pilgrimage, Turfan has contributed much to his success. This essay deals with two Turfanese who have served Xuanzang. (I) Among the numerous pupils and assistants of Xuanzang, Xuanjue is less renowned, yet he enjoys a position in Buddhist historiography. Thanks to MSS finds at Turfan, new clues of his life and work can now be gathered to supplement his biography particularly in respect to his importance for the local Buddhist community in the 7th century. (II) Though a marginal figure in the
, the once messenger of Xuanzang Ma Xuanzhi is recorded in a Turfan document.
