<p style='text-align: justify;'>This is a manuscript of the <i>Nyāyasudhā</i> (sometimes named <i>Rāṇaka</i>), one of the most important commentaries on Kumārila Bhaṭṭa ’s <i>Tantravārttika</i>. The author, Someśvara Bhaṭṭa, son of Mādhava Bhaṭṭa , might have lived in the 12th century (Mishra 1964: 42, Verpoorten 1987: 38). The manuscript covers the whole of the third chapter (<i>pāda</i>) of the first book (<i>adhyāya</i>) of the <i>Mīmāṃsāsūtra</i>s, dealing especially with non Vedic sources of <i>dharma</i> (<i>smṛti</i>, <i>ācāra</i>, etc.). It was copied in Benares (<i>Kāśī</i>) in Vikrama saṃvat 1524 or 1624 (= 1467/ 68 or 1567/ 68 CE, the date in the colophon has been corrected).</p>
