This paper explores the issue of digital reconstruction of the literature of the Sutra Cave in Dunhuang Mogao Grottoes which had previously been lost overseas for over a century, and the systematic publication of Dunhuang texts scattered around the world on a shared digital resource platform for the academic world, and proposing the “digital recovery” of the unearthed texts of the Sutra Cave in Dunhuang Mogao Grottoes, many of which had been lost overseas for over a hundred years. If Tunhuangology scholars and experts can share these cultural heritage resources and use digital textual research theories and method to carry out Tunhuangology studies, better results can be achieved. This will advance the overall implementation this project, as well as its construction, its overall framework, the adoption of technical routes, and to explore the jointly constructed and shared model of “digitally recovering” the texts of the Sutra Cave in the Dunhuang Mogao Grottoes, so that more experts, scholars, and members of the public can share this precious resource and actively promote the in-depth study of Tunhuangology. It is also hoped that this will achieve the “digital recovery” of the Scriptures of the Sutra Cave in the Dunhuang Mogao Grottoes in a real sense, and provide an effective method for international Tunhuangology scholars, experts, and the public to access its resources quickly and easily.
