Medieval Manuscripts Alive: Ge’ez

Dr. Getatchew Haile (Professor Emeritus at St. John’s University in Collegeville, Minnesota) reads the opening lines of the Gospel of Luke from an illuminated Ethiopian Gospel Book made about 1480–1520 as part of the Getty’s Medieval Manuscripts Alive series. The manuscript is written in Ge’ez, the official language of various historical kingdoms and courts in Ethiopia. Today it is primarily used in the liturgical services of the Ethiopian Church.
