The paper discusses the recently identified collection of sems
sde
class texts in Tangut translation. The author provides initial
textual analysis of the texts in the composition and offers several suggestions
concerning the historical setting of these texts. There is also evidence
allowing to suggest that several versions of the “five early translations”,
probably based on varying Tibetan versions, were current in the Tangut State.
The study revealed a systematic relationship which existed between the
compositions united under the sems sde category in the Tangut
State. They formed a coherent whole of core texts, commentaries and historical
accounts. Finally, several observations concerning possible historical
traditions of the Tangut sems sde are provided.
