Latest on the THEOT Project (Ethiopic manuscripts)

ETHIOPIC WATCH: Garry Jost Presents at International Conferences. Dr. Garry Jost presented at the International Society of Biblical Literature Meeting in Berlin, Germany, and in Boston at the Annual Meetings of the Society of Biblical Literature and the American Academy of Religion in 2017 (Marylhurst University).
Dr. Jost’s research is part of the Textual History of the Ethiopic Old Testament (THEOT) project comprised of colleagues in North America, Africa and Europe. This project analyzes manuscripts written in Ge`ez, which is the ancient language of Ethiopia and the liturgical language of the Ethiopian Orthodox Church. The manuscripts date from the 14th through 20th centuries.
Background on the THEOT Project is here and links.
