This volume contains eight Amharic texts of various genres and length critically edited, translated, and annotated by Getatchew Haile. The texts are taken from manuscripts of the Ethiopian Manuscript Microfilm Library, at the Hill Museum and Manuscript Library, Collegeville, MN (7007 and 7650), and of the British Library, London (Or. 16223), and are representative of the genuine tradition of teaching and interpretation of the Ethiopian Orthodox Täwaḥǝdo Church. The anthology includes commentaries of prayers and confessions of faiths, Christian oriental legends, and theological treatises. It is an essential collection of documents for the study of early Amharic literature and Old Amharic language and orthographical practices.
