Central Asia comprises basically Western as well as Eastern Turkestan; however,
depending on the historical situation, this area can be extended by Afghanistan'
lran, the Caucasus, and large areas of modern Russia and China. Being an area so
large, it can be expected that research in this freld is able to make contributions to
several Oriental disciplines. When thinking about a proper contribution for the
Festschrift of Tapani, two different subjects came into my mind. The first idea
was to investigate historical Jewish pfesence in Central Asia and adjoining areas
with the help of Jewish literary remains from Central Asia, as well as the "ethnic"
designation yahûd 'Jew' as it occurs in mediaeval documents from Central Asia'
Partly this idea was inspired by the rather poor contribution of HoHelsel (2002) in
the memorial volume for Hans-Joachim K¡.¡y6IT' As a matter of fact, this idea
will be realized in a review of the memorial volume tbat will be published in the
Centra! Asiatic Journal, The other idea, concerning Nestorian personal names
that occur in Central Asian documents, will be presented in the following' In the
end, the second idea got the upper hand as it is somehow linked with my forthcoming habilitation onomastica mongolica medií aevi, which (too slow) progress
Tapani has been patiently following over the years.
Before presenting the onomastic corpus, it might be useful to give a short
survey on Nestorian literary remains found in Central Asia and China, starting
from the sogdiana in the west and ending up in south-china in the east.
up to now, no Nestorian literary remains in Sogdian/sogdian (language/
script) have been found in the sogdiana. Nevertheless, Nestorian presence in this
region is testif¡ed by a short rock inscription in Syriac, found near Urghut (close
to Samarkand), and an ostracon from Panjkant, inscribed with Psalms l-2.
Sogdian Nestorianism is further testified through several Sogdian/Sogdian rock
inscription found in Ladakh (West-Tibet), and the Semireðie area, north of the old
homeland of the Sogdians. Although the Sogdian inscriptions from Semireðie are
not directly Nestorian by context, Nestorian presence is shown f. ex. by Sogd.

mlp'ny'teacher' < Syr. mlpn'in them (Lrvstc lgBl; Slr,rs-Wrr-lra¡,,rs 1988,
1991.44,1993). The main bulk of Nestorian literary remains from semireðie, connected with Turkic people as it is visible through the personal names found within
them, is formed by over 600 gravestones, mostly lost today. Mainly the texts of
the gravestones are written in Syriac/Syriac, only 12 are written in Turkic/Syriac
(Syriac/Syriac: CuwoLsoN 1886, 1890, 1897; H¡rlr 1909; Krel¡¡ 1998, 2000;
Nnu 1913. Turkic/Syriac: DZurrlncurcv 1968, R¡olorr lB90.l3B-142). The
oldest of these gravestones can be dated to n859, followed in time by *91 l, *1201.
Mainly the stones stem from the l3th and l4th centuries (Snnru 1937.408-415).
Further western Middle Turkic literary remains connected with christianity,
although not Nestorianism, are exemplifred by the famous codex cumanicus
(GnøNnecH 1936, 1942; Lrcnr¡ l98l), and an Armenian-TurkicÂJigur-ArabicLatin text of the Apostles'creed @orne 1965).
Another Nestorian graveyard is situated further east, near to the old Nestorian center Almalïq in the lli-valley (Dzurraaculov 1968.473); possibly, also the
third inscription published by Hrelr (1909) belongs to this complex. All but one
of the Almaliþ-inscriptions are written in Syriac/Syriac.
Proceeding further to the south, one arrives in the Turfan region where a
great variety ofNestorian texts has been found. These texts, psalters and lectionaries, hymnbooks and homilies, treaties concerning asceticism and religious life, as
well as servicebooks, hagiographical literature and miscellaneous texts, comprise
not only examples in Syriac/Syriac (MnnórH 1984, 1985, l99la-b; Mûr-un
1904a-b; S¡cHnu 1905; Saer¡ 1937), some of these texts contain rubrics in
Sogdian; Sogdian/Sogdian-Syriac (Hewseu
l94t; Mür-lan 1913, 1934; Slr,,rs-Wul-¡¡¡,,ts 1985, 1991, 1992, 1994, 1995a-c; Suroenvnr,¡r.l 1974-8t, 1988), and
Uigur/Uigur-Syriac (Bervc 1926; Zteue 1974, t977, l98lb, lg97-g8), bur also
fragments of the psalters in Middle Persiar/Pahlavi, and New persian-syriac/
Syriac, as well as the first line of a psalter in Greek as a superscription to its translation into Sogdian (Srus-wrr.r,nus 1990, SuNosRMANN 1976). on the ground of
paleographicjudgement, these text have been dated from the 9th to the I lth/l2th
centuries. In addition, some uigur texts, f. ex. steuH, J, have an exceptional large
amount of Nestorian personal names.
Further east, in Dunhuang, the gateway to China, no Nestorian Turkic texts
have been found up to now; however, one Syriac text (Klen & Tunncu 1994)
has been discovered. The only sogdian manuscript of recognizable Nestorian
content is a small fragment of a text of popular character, an oracle book of the
type known in the west as the sorfesa apostolorum (Srus-Wrnlnvs 1976.63-65),
that might be compared with a similar booklet from Turfan, as welt as Tibetan
oracle texts (Lr Coq 1909; Rvenrzrl 0000d; Unny 1983, 1987). Furtherrnore,
several secular Sogdian texts with a strong linguistic impact from Turkic (Srrras-
Nestorian Personal Nantes front Cenrral Asia
& Harullro¡l 1990), contain a number of Nestorian personal names' as
also the phrase pr by'y n'm'in the name of the Lord' attested in two of them,
could indicate Nestorianism. These texts can be attributed to the 9th and l0th
centuries. Most importantly, however, Dunhuang and its surroundings were an
important center of early Chinese Nestorianism, testified by several Chinese Nestorian texts found here. Besides the Xianfu inscription (+), the most interesting
of these Nestorian Chinese texts is the one called Zuniing, or "Treaty of Veneration", which contains the titles of 35 Nestorian Chinese texts, but three of these
texts are Manichaean (ENoxr 1998, Mou¡.e 1930, S¡sru 1937). From the point of
time the Chinese documents are earlier than the Sogdian documents, as they can
in any case before
to after
be dated from around
Nestorianism was by imperial edict forbidden in China. In Qara-qoto, northeast of
Dunhuang, one Turkic/Syriac Nestorian text has been discovered (Ptout Evsrala
19ó6). From Chang'an, southeast of Dunhuang, the Xianfu inscription (*?81;
partly in Chinese, partly in Syriac), an important document of the propagation of
Nestorianism in China, has been known since a long time (Mouue 1930; Psu-lor
1984, 1996; Sneru 1937).
Later Nestorianism in China is connected with the raise of the Mongols in
the t3th century, and their conquest of first the Jin Dynasty in 1234, and later the
Song Dynasty in 1276. The most important centre of Nestorianism in the l2thl4th century was situated in olon süme (Tenduc of Marco Polo), the capital of
the Önggtit. The Onggüt are mentioned in Chinese sources as Shato (translation
of Önggüt, as shato 'quicksand' < såa 'sand, gravel, pebbles' * lo'a steep bank'
: Tu. öng 'desolate, uninhabited; desert' + grif 'class marker') since the 9th century, in later times they were called also bai Tan'white Tatars' (Bnsr 1988.3132, OP80.5-7). Besides grave inscriptions (Munav^MA 1963), also the sealof the
Onggüt Mâr Yahballâhâ III preserved on two letters to Pope Boniface VIII and
Benedict XI respectively (Her"llron 1972), as well as the personal names of the
Önggüt, or people associated with them, recorded in the Secref Hisfory (SH)
belong to this complex. In the l4th century a Catholic church in Gothic style was
erected in Olon süme; a very important corpus of Mongolic documents stems
from the l6th-l7th centuries (E¡¡oru 1998.475-481, Herssrc 1976.1-l l). A grave
inscription from the northeast of Beijing, and a set of Syriac Nestorian documents
from Beijing (HaullroN & Nlu 1994, Sern 1937) are not necessarily connected
with the Önggüt, as Nestorianism is also attested for the Kereit (Rvenrzrc 0000a).
Further, also several members of Cinggis qan's family had at least friendly
attitudes towards Nestorianism, and some of the highest offrcials of the Mongol
empire were Nestorians (Bovle 1976,1977; Buu¡-l 1993; Frev 1975; Rvnr 1998;
Spulen 197ó). The importance of Nestorians in the medieval Mongolian society
is additionally stressed by the fact that they are mentioned besides "real" ethnic
Votxe,n RYstrzxt
groups in Middle Mongol "conquest-catalogues" as a separate "people"
(Rvserzru 20O4a). Some further Ch¡istian names are attested in Western Middle
Mongol documents, f. ex. Maryus in the Nûr ad-Dîn edict (Li72c.357), but, taking
into consideration the provenance of the documents, these names are not necessa-
rily Nestorian
Far to the south, two more important centers of Nestorianism in Yuan-China,
namely Zaiton and Yangzhou, can be found, Besides numerous Arabic and Manichaean stone carvings and grave inscriptions, nine Syriac, one bilingual ChineseSyriac, one Latin and two Turkic inscriptions, were discovered in Zaiton, Chin.
Quanzhou, at the mouth of the Jinqiang-river, on the coast opposite to Taiwan
(ENon 1998.482495, Fosrnn 1954, Munnynnae 1964, Heu¡¡.ro¡¡ & Nru 1994).
North of Zaiton, in Yangzhou, two Latin tombstones (Eworl 1998.495, Rouls¡u
1954), as well as a bilingual Chinese-Turkic/Syriac grave inscription have been
discovered, for the establishment of several Nestorian monasteries by Mar Sargis
from Samarkand, see Lrcer (1972).

The basis of the following corpus is formed by documents clearly connected with
Nestorianism. Furthermore, according to the guideline of my Onomastica mongolica medíi aevi, only texts written in Tu¡kic or Mongolic (inespective of the script
used) have been considered, namely: BeiNest; OSNesta-e, l-10; QqtNestl;
SealNest; SemNestl-l 2; SH (Önggüt); TfnNestl -l 8; YangNestl ; ZaiNestl-2'
Surely this attitude leaves aside a large body of literature written in Sogdian,
Syriac or Chinese (with a great number of personal names); however, a difierent
approach would have extended the corpus far beyond the frame of the present
work and, fi.¡rthermore it would have gone beyond my competence. However, for
comparison, Iranian, Syriac and Chinese Nestorian documents, as well as lranian
onomastic research, have been taken into consideration whenever needed.
