Buddhist manuscripts from Afghanistan in The Schøyen Collection

"Some time after Taliban came into power a collection of Buddhist manuscripts from Afghanistan were acquired by The Schøyen Collection, Oslo, Norway. The manuscripts are often referred to as the "Dead Sea scrolls of Buddhism". This web page presents the current debate concerning the ownership of these and other manuscripts in The Schøyen Collection, but also information on cultural property issues."
