The Textual History of the Ethiopic Old Testament Project

"THE TEXTUAL HISTORY OF THE ETHIOPIC OLD TESTAMENT PROJECT (THEOT) is an international effort to identify and to trace textual trajectories found in Ethiopian manuscripts that contain books included in the canon of the Hebrew Bible." It does not seem to have its own dedicated website, but this post on the Juxta website (the source of the quotation) gives some information on it, as do the 2011 and 2014 calls for papers of the SBL Ethiopic Bible and Literature Consultation. And this Marylhurst University press release (from which I found out about the project) briefly discusses the work of Dr. Garry Jost on the Ethiopic text of Obadiah.
