Abstract Syr HT 41-42-43 are three bifolia from the Hudra (on the
Annunciation and the Nativity) that are part of the archive of Syriac
fragments forming the Christian Library at Turfan. Dated to the
twelfth century, the bifolia are amongst the earliest exemplars of the
Hudra. Their text exhibits many differences from the later sixteenth
century manuscripts that formed the basis of the printed editions of
the Hudra and sheds insight onto the transmission of the early East
Syrian liturgical tradition at a time when the division between the Hudra and Gazza had not yet taken place.
