Collecting pearls in the ocean...
The objects of our spiritual heritage, stored in prestigious museums, libraries, archival funds of the world, can become very interesting for many scientific research, creating educational projects. Such research in its laboriousness is comparable with the extraction of pearls from the bottom of the sea or the search for a needle in a haystack. If we seriously approach the study of these manuscripts and sources, which have now become an invaluable asset to mankind, then a lifetime might not be enough.
This was emphasized during a briefing on “Cultural values of Uzbekistan abroad – an integral part of our heritage”, organized by the Agency for Information and Mass Communications under the Administration of the President of the Republic of Uzbekistan by the Center for the Study of Cultural Heritage of Uzbekistan abroad.
Currently, within the framework of the project “Creating a register of cultural property, publishing a facsimile of rare manuscripts of Uzbekistan abroad”, approved by the Ministry of Innovative Development of the Republic of Uzbekistan, the main attention is paid to preparing for publication of a registry covering more than 800 manuscripts of Uzbekistan located abroad, and a facsimile of the work of Alisher Navoi.
At the briefing, detailed information was provided on the work carried out to study our cultural heritage abroad.
