Brill's Bibliotheca Indonesica series presents Indonesian texts and their translations into English. The texts editions included in the series are based on sound philological and textual scholarship and are meant to enhance interest in these texts. The introductory chapters to these texts explain what they are and put these texts in the wider contexts of the Indonesian culture they stem from and in a wider Indonesian literary context. The peer-reviewed series preserves and opens up an important part of the worlds literary heritage hidden in manuscripts in a wide variety of languages and scripts usually unintelligible to non-specialists.
