AbstractThe works attributed to Homer, folktales, Rabbinic literature and Buddhist scriptures share
the feature that they all lack an Ur-text, an originary core. How are we to understand the
nature of such literature, and how are we to edit it in a fashion that does not impose a unitary
perspective onto what is inherently diverse and fluid? The ERC-funded Open Philology
project is building a digital environment within which to edit Buddhist scriptures. This paper
introduces the problem of fluid texts, sketches how reflections on Rabbinic and Biblical
literature shed light on it, and outlines the approach being taken by our team to our multilingual corpora of Buddhist materials.
