Photographs of selected manuscripts from The Guardian of the Flame Sri Lanka Manuscript Collection (MS SC MSS 203). The complete collection consists of 390 individual manuscript objects. The manuscripts are predominantly Theravada Buddhist religious texts that originate from as early as the 3rd Century AD, although these copies of texts date from circa 1600-1910. Descriptions were compiled by Wijitha Bandara and Dr. Stephen Berkwitz. Photos presented here were made by several contributors over time, most photos depict covers and colophons, and complete sets of folio images are added as they are created.
