Marian texts, illustrated with scenes from the gospels.
This manuscript on parchment contains Marian texts written in Gəʿəz, the liturgical language of the Ethiopian Church. The first quire is dedicated to four illustrations of scenes from the gospels, including Christ's Passion. The text is copied in two columns of 17 lines and features rubrication, both for decorative purposes, as seen on the opening folio, and to highlight names throughout. The codex is accompanied by a fabric cover and a leather carrying case.
