3rd Summer School in Ethiopian and Eritrean Manuscript Studies – Mekelle (Ethiopia)


25-29 September 2018

Advanced summer school on the study of Christian and Islamic manuscripts in Ethiopia and Eritrea. No reliable number for Islamic manuscripts in Ethiopia is known; until recently, only a few dozens were available and/or catalogued. In the past years, several hundred have been surveyed, partially digitized, and described, but more effort is still needed in evaluating this part of Ethiopian written heritage. Michele Petrone activities focused on the social and ethnic contextualization of manuscript digitization activities and on technical issues related to fieldwork.
