Product Description

Traditionally Ethiopia has formed a bridge bertween civilization sof Africa and Asia. Many of her inhabitants came from South Arabia introuducing their language, writing system, and other aspects of their cultural heritage. Jerusalem became as vital as Aksum in the national consciousness of the Ethipians. In this volume Professor Ullendorff, the first incumbent of the only Chair of Ethiopian Studies in Great Britain, investigates the relationship of Ethiopia to the Bible. He considers the historical background of religious manifestations in the country, translations of the Bible into Ethiopian languages, and the impact of the Old Testament, which goes beyond anything experienced in the other Oriental Christian Churches. The book concludes with an examination of the story of the Queen of Sheba, based on the Biblical account of the queen's visit to King Solomon, which has undergone extensive Arabian, Ethiopian, Jewish and other elaborations and has become the subject of one of the most ubiquitious and fertile cycles of legends in the Near East. From a large and confused skein of traditions and tales Professor Ullendorff has disentangled some basic features which are common to all stories about that famous encounter between the Queen of the South and the greatest of the kings of Israel.
