Ethiopian biblical commentaries are a corpus of ancient, traditional teaching that comment on all books of the Bible following a relatively uniform methodology. This Ethiopian tradition is an heir of the traditional branches of Antiochene and Alexandrian Eastern Christianity.
The existence of these exegetical commentaries is practically unknown outside the Ethiopian Orthodox Church, whose mission has been to keep and faithfully transmit them from generation to generation. Most of the commentaries still are in the form of privately owned parchment manuscripts. These have been handed down from masters to disciples until today.
This volume presents a critical edition of nine manuscripts containing commentaries on prophet Micah. It also provides an English translation of the originals written in the Gecez and Amharic languages as well as a study of the literary form of these commentaries.
