La Galigo

„We present here manuscript NBG Boeg 188, the Buginese mythical epic “La Galigo” in twelve volumes, which has been inscribed in UNESCO’s Memory of the World register in 2011. These twelve volumes form the largest continuous part of what is the most voluminous literary work in the world. The complete work is estimated to contain 6.000 folio-sized pages and because of its enormous length no manuscripts exist that contain the complete text. Our manuscript of twelve volumes covers the initial third part of the story.“
