Amharische Syntax in späten Originalwerken des Gǝʿǝz

[Wal.: The Gǝʿǝz syntax of the Sälamat, short poems which were added to the text of the Synaxarium at a later date, shows features that are known from modern Ethiosemitic languages, especially Amharic. This applies in particular to the preposing of the adjective and the genitive within the noun phrase, the final position of the verb in the matrix as well as the dependent clause, the fronting of dependent clauses before their matrix clause and...

Ein amharischer Atlas aus Malta

Ewald Wagner
In August 2008 Professor Dr. Hans H. Kaminsky of the Institute of History of the University of Giessen, gave me an Amharic atlas, printed in Malta, which he had bought several years ago, at the Giessen flee-market. The atlas is now in the possession of the Hiob Ludolf Zentrum für Äthiopistik of the Asien-Afrika-Institut, Universität Hamburg. The article places the atlas into the historical context of the educational efforts of German protestant missionaries who worked...

The article considers the current state of research on the Chronicle of John of Nikiu, including an examination of the textual witnesses, the language of the original composition, and the biographical and historical information of the chronicler. The textual analysis of EMML 7919...

Beschreibung der zuletzt von der Bayerischen Staatsbibliothek, München erworbenen äthiopischen Handschriften

Veronika Six
A description of the collection of Ethiopian manuscripts in the Bayerische Staatsbibliothek, Munich, can be found in the volumes of the Union Catalogue of Oriental Manuscripts in Germany (Verzeichnis der orientalischen Handschriften in Deutschland, VOHD). However, by 2016, the library’s holdings had been augmented by a further twenty Ethiopian manuscripts: some were donations, but most had been purchased at auctions. They are presented in this article according to the rules of the VOHD. Of the...

Reliance on Predicative Units as a Method of Analysing and Translating Amharic Written Texts

Iosif Fridman
In analysing and translating Amharic texts, most foreign students have experienced major problems while trying to ‘redirect’ the rigidly leftbranching syntax of Amharic into the predominantly right-branching syntax of most European languages. The way out of this difficulty proposed by some teachers of Amharic consists in the so-called ‘translating from the end’ principle: the student begins to decipher the structure of an Amharic sentence from the finite verb form at its very end and gradually...

Old Testament Lessons in the Säʿatat (‘Hours’) of Giyorgis Säglawi

This article considers the use of Old Testament readings in the Säʿatat (‘Hours’) of Abba Giyorgis Säglawi (d.1425), an unusual practice in Gǝʿǝz liturgy. It is believed that the introduction of Old Testament readings into the Säʿatat went through various stages. It was first introduced on Saturdays to better understand the greatness of the day on which God rested. It was then extended to Sunday. It seems certain that the question of the Sabbath(s) influenced...

A Psalter from Tübingen: Although Inconspicuous the Text, Neverthless a Treasure for Manuscriptology

Veronika Six
The University Library of Tübingen, Germany, has acquired a manuscript with the text of a Mäzmurä Dawit. The manuscript is dated. At first glance it seems to be the standard Psalter. But there are several criteria, which give insight into the manuscript culture, and which has not changed during centuries. The modern printed editions of a Mäzmurä Dawit exactly follow the scheme of the long tradition. Besides being a perfect witness to the traditional manuscript...
