The series Ethiopic Manuscripts, Texts, and Studies offers, in the first place, catalogues of the Ethiopic Manuscript Imaging Project, whose purpose it is to digitize and catalogue collections of Ethiopic manuscripts in North America and around the world. Beyond this, though, the series offers a venue for monographs, revised dissertations, and texts that explore the rich historical, literary, and artistic traditions of Ethiopia and the Ethiopian Orthodox Church. This is a catalogue of the digital collection of images produced from the first two hundred and thirty nine Ethiopic manuscripts digitised by the Ethiopic Manuscript Imaging Project (EMIP). These include 105 codices and 134 scrolls of Ethiopian spiritual healing. The codices include gospels and other scriptural texts, liturgies, missals, psalters, hymns and commentaries. Each catalogue entry is laid out in seven sections: 1. Number, name and title 2. Physical description and date (including descriptions of cases and covers) 3. List of contents 4. List of miniatures and illuminations 5. Varia 6. Notes 7. Quire maps The scrolls of spiritual healing contain prayers against diseases and natural disasters, such as epidemics and drought, and against the evil spirits that are believed to cause them. Many of the scrolls concern conditions suffered by women, such as menstruation, miscarriage and infertility. Each catalogue entry contains five elements: 1. Number, name and title 2. Physical description and date (including descriptions of cases and covers) 3. List of contents 4. List of miniatures and illuminations 5. Name of the owner A particular focus of interest of the Project is on the scribal techniques and practices in evidence within the manuscripts, and this has been emphasised in the catalogue descriptions. Along with its companion volume Ethiopian Scribal Practice 1, which includes colour images of all the codices listed, this catalogue provides an invaluable research tool for scholars and students in Ethiopian Studies. The manuscripts catalogued here constitute a resource for a wide range of studies, such as the exploration of developments of scribal and artistic practice across time, or the interconnections between common elements in manuscripts, scribal practices, scribal education, and community ideology.

There are many stories to tell about the Ethiopic manuscripts in the collection of the Mekane Yesus Seminary in Addis Ababa. The stories about the content of the manuscripts are told in the catalogue (EMTS volume 13). But this volume recounts stories about the book culture that produced the manuscripts. One study provides a general introduction to Ethiopian Christian codicology and the scribal practices in evidence in the collection. Another focuses on the particular story of scribal errors and corrections. And a final study provides an art-historical account of all of the illuminations contained in the collection--even down to the crude drawings in pencil that adorn some pages. Books contain texts. But they are witnesses, first and foremost, to a particular people, at a particular place, at a particular moment in time, who had a particular way of making and using their books. The content of their books tells us about the community's past, about the authoritative texts from antiquity which they valued. But their book culture tells us about their present, about the history of the reception of those works among these people in order to articulate in the present their identity and ethos.

""We are indebted to the Mekane Yesus Seminary in Addis Ababa for preserving the small, but interesting collection of 54 manuscripts here catalogued. Special thanks should go to its scholarly Librarian, Alaqa Meseret Sebhat Le-ab, who collected these works between 1977 and 1980. We are all no less grateful to the dedication of Professor Stephen Delamarter, and to his Ethiopic Manusript Imaging Project team from George Fox University in Portland, Oregon, who have expertly digitized this collection, as well as the considerably larger one at the Institute of Ethiopian Studies."" --From the foreword by Richard Pankhurst Kesis Melaku Terefe served the church in Ethiopia for several years in various positions in Awasa (southern Ethiopia) and Harar (eastern Ethiopia).
