The Fragments Found at the Village God’s Temple Collected by Dunhuang Academy Originally being from the Library Cave
【Abstract】 The fragments found at the village God’s temple in 1994 were originally wrapped in the benlly of Buddhist statue of the Qing dynasty. Generally speaking, people such as the "tester"of the unearthed fragments Yan Wenru,the staff of Dunhuang Arts Research Institute Li Yu and Fan Hua think that the fragments were put into the belly of statue of Buddha for beneficence while the Buddhist statue was building. The article"A Preliminary Report on Findng the Buddhist Fragment" written by Dun-huang Arts Reearch lnstitute also shows the same view. After a thorough study, we find that the frag-ments found at the village God’s temple can put togather with the fragment from the Library Cave collected before liberation. Though some of them can not put togather, in chapter of the Buddhist stras, paper materials,frame line and words they are all the same.Among the fragments donated by Jupanese Mr. Aoyama, three pieces can put togather with the fragments collected in Dunhuang Muse-um and Dunhuang Academy and found at the village God’s temple. Consequently, the fragments found at the village God’s temple were originally from the Library Cave.
