PREFACE. 



I. In the year 1847 the Tmistees of the British Museum published a Catalogue of the 
Ethiopic Manuscripts in the collections under their care. This work, which contains full 
descriptions of eighty-two volumes (see pp. 327, 328), was compiled by Dr. A. Dillmann, 
now Professor in the University of Berlin, to whom we also owe a Catalogue of the Ethiopic 
Manuscripts in the Bodleian Library (Oxford, 1848), at that time only thirty-three in 
number. Subsequently the British Museum was enriched by the purchase, at various 
times between the years 1847 and 1867, of thirty-five volumes (see p. 328, commencing 
with Add. 18,993, and ending with Orient. 80). 

When the expedition against King Theodore was organized by the English Government 
in 1867, it was determined to send an archaeologist to accompany it, and Mr. R. R. Holmes 
(then an assistant in the Department of Manuscripts, now librarian at Windsor Castle) 
was selected by the Trustees for this purpose. It was hoped that Mr. Holmes would be 
able to visit sites of importance, to collect antiquities, and to procure valuable manuscripts. 
The state of the country, the hurried character of the expedition, and the route chosen for 
the army, prevented the first part of this program from being carried out. Of manu- 
scripts Mr. Holmes was able to procure only a very few on the way up the country 
(Orient. 451, 452, 453) ; but their scarcity was easily accounted for when the fortress of 
Magdala (Makdala) fell into our hands. King Theodore intended, it appears (see p. 1), to 
build there a church, in lionour of the Saviour of the World (Madbane 'Alam). Now a 
church requires a collection of service-books ; and, as oriental churches and mosques are 
places for study as Avell as worship, libraries are usually formed in connection with them. 
King Theodore for years previous to 1868 had been actively engaged in collecting manuscripts 
from other churches for the endowment of the chui-ch he proposed to build ; and the result 
was a library of about a thousand volumes, which fell into the hands of our victorious troops. 
From these a selection was made for the Ensjlish Government with the assistance of that 
accomplished scholar Mr. Werner Munzinger, then one of the European consuls at 
Massowah, whose recent death is deeply deplored by the scientific world. The remainder 
of the Magdala library was given away in presents to the priests of the various churches 
which our troops passed on their return to the coast. Some volumes had no doubt been 
previously " looted " by our soldiers, and many more were purchased from their later

owners by officers of the army. In fact, the number of manuscripts brought to this 
country in 1868, judging by what I have myself seen in the hands of private individuals 
and in other libraries,* cannot, at the lowest computation, have been less than five 
hundred. 

On the 28th of August 1808 the bulk of the Magdala Collection was handed over to 
the Trustees of the British Museum by the Secretary of State for India. Some volumes 
were sent to the Royal Library at Windsor, of which Her Majesty was graciously pleased 
to present ten (namely. Orient. 591, 607, 611, 616, 648, 649, 655, 713, 714, and 723) to 
the British Museum on the 21st of January 1869. The entire Magdala Collection consists, 
therefore, of 350 volumes. Only one manuscript (Orient. 1378) has since been added by 
purchase to the Department. 

In the course of official duty it fell to my lot to arrange and draw up short descriptions 
of these manuscripts, which I published, in an abridged form, in the Zeitschrift der 
Deutschen Morgenliindisclien Gesellschaft, Bd, xxiv., pages 599 — 616. When I resigned 
the post of Assistant Keeper of the Manuscripts in 1870, I was honoured by the Trustees 
with the commission to prepare a fuller Catalogue of the Magdala Collection; and I com- 
menced this work as soon as I had finished the Catalogue of the Nitrian Collection of Syriac 
Manuscripts in the British Museum, the third part of which appeared at the close of 1872. 

II. Many persons will, I am fully aware, be sadly disappointed at the character of the 
Magdala Collection ; more especially those who too sanguinely hoped to find in Abyssinia 
vast stores of ancient Greek and Coptic manuscripts, palimpsests, and what not. For 
this expectation I never could see the shadow of a reason. Any one who had occupied 
himself in the least with the study of Ge'ez, must have known that a considerable part of 
the Ethiopic literature was of comparatively late date, and consisted mainly of translations, 
made sometimes from Coptic, but far more frequently from Arabic, between the fourteenth 
and sixteenth centuries. The Coptic works were in most instances versions of Greek origi- 
nals ; but in the case of the Arabic there was yet another link in the.chain, namely Syi-iac. 
The value of such translations in the second and third degree must, of course, be small, 
even for the purposes of textual criticism, unless it should happen that the original Greek 
has perished in whole or in part. 



* Tlie University Library of Cambridge, for example, 
possesses several Ethiopic manuscripts, which no doubt 
came from Magdala, though only two of them, I think, 
are actually so marked. Among these is a fine copy of 
the Gospels, of the latter part of the xvii"" cent. ; a manu- 
script of the xviii"" cent., containing the rest of the New 
Testament, viz., St. Paul's Epistles, the Acts, the Reve- 
lation of St. John, and the seven Apostolic Epistles ; and 
a splennid copy of tiie Old Testament, written for 
Maryam Senfi, the queen of Sai-za DengCl, in the twenty- 
sixth year of that king's reign, A.D. 1588. It contains : 
the Octuteuch, Samuel and Kings, Proverbs, Eculesiastes, 



Wisdom, Job, Isaiah, the twelve minor Prophets (im- 
perfect), Jeremiah (including Baruch, Lamentations, and 
the Epistle of Jeremiah), 4th Esdras, Daniel (including 
Susanna, etc ), and Ezekiel. Another volume, of the 
xvi"" or xvii"" cent., contains Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, 
and Wi>dom. Besides these there are a Kerlos and an 
'Argnnona DSftgH, both of the xviii"' cent. ; a couple of 
Psalters ; the Gospel nf St. John (brought from Southern 
India by Dr. C. Buchanan), of the xvii"" cent.; the 
Irimestu 'A'mada Mesfir in Amharic; and one or two 
more of less note. 



PREFACE. T 

Commencing with the oldest portion of the GSez litei-ature, the Bible and its Apocrypha, 
the reader's attention may be called in particular to some of the rarer apocryphal writings 
of the Old Testament, which he will find in this collection ; such as the Book of Enoch 
(oxtant only in Ethiopic), the Kiifule ("Liber Jubilseorum " or "Parva Genesis"), the 
Ascension of Isaiah, the " Reliqua Verborum Baruchi," tlie first (or, according to the 
Vulgate, the fourth) Book of Esdras or Ezra, and the " Liber Adami" or llistory of Adam 
and Eve. The Ethiopic Book of the Maccabees is also here in several copies; but the 
later translation of first and second Maccabees from the Latin text is rather curious than 
valuable. The apocryphal literature of the New Testament is best represented by the 
Acts of the Apostles, recently translated into English, from a single and quite modern 
manuscript, by the Rev. C. Malan. Those who wish to see what an insane craving after 
miracles has led to, and to contemplate the melancholy spectacle of Mariolatry run mad, 
will find ample food for study and refl.ection — perhaps also for mirth — in the so-called 
Miracles of our Lord and of the Virgin Mary. 

Of the Service-books the most interesting are the Missals. Some of the hvmns mav 
possibly be thought worthy of publication and translation. The same can scarcely be said, 
I fear, of the " Psalter of Christ " and of the "Psalter of Mary," which are sometimes 
found in the larger copies of the Psalter. 

Prom the Synaxaria and other Lives of Saints, collected and separate, materials may 
be gleaned for the history of Ethiopia. The Acts of foreign Saints are, however, generally 
known to us from other and better sources, Greek and Syriac. 

In the department of Patristic Theology the Magdala Collccticn offers us spurious 
treatises ascribed to Clement, the disciple of St. Peter; Chrysostora on the Epistle to the He- 
brews ; works of Cyril of Alexandria, Epipbanius, and other Greek Eathers ; a bulky Catena 
Patrum on the four Gospels ; the works of Mar Isaac of Nineveh and of the Aragawi Man- 

fasawi (John Sabu) ; the twelve homilies of Severus of 'Esmunain {^^yJ:^) ; and collections 
of homilies by other writers, Greek and Syriac. I would further mention the large treatises 
on dogmatic theology called Edimdnota 'Ahau or '* The Faith of the Fathers," JIdvo'i or 
" The Collector," and Talmld or " The Disciple ;" of the last two of which I have given 
a fuller description than ordinary, as being yet hardly known to Orientalists but by 
name. 

Such books as the Didascalia Apostolorwn, the Slnddus or "Body of Ecclesiastical Law," 
the " Testament of our Lord," and the Fel/ia Nagast or " Laws of the Kmgs," will no 
doubt repay further study. The same may be said with equal certainty of such historical 
and chronological works as 'Ahii Shaker, Yvhannes Madabber, and the later chronicles of 
Ethiopia. Nor should I pass over in silence the translation of Gorionides' History of the 
Jews, 'al-Makln's Universal History, and the apocryphal Kebra Nagast or " Glory of the 
Kings," to which the Abyssiuians attach such value that the reigning monarch King John 
sent to London to beg, and not in vain, for the restoi-ation of a copy (see p. 297). 

III. I have already said that the manuscripts in the Magdala Collection are of com- 
paratively modern date. In fact none of them are anterior to A.D. 1400. There are, how-

ever, so far as T know, none of greater antiquity in England, not even in the small but clioice 
collection of the British and Foreign Bible Society.* A few manuscripts of the four- 
teenth century may exist among the rich stores of the Biblioth^que Nationale at Paris, a 
catalogue of which is now being compiled by M, Zotenberg; but the oldest dated volumes in 
England, to the best of my knowledge, are Orient. 719, written before A.D. 1434 (see 
p. 193) ;t Orient. 650 (see p. 46) and Add. 11,678 (see Dillmann's Catalogue, p. 53), both 
written in the reign of Zar'a Ya kob, A.D. 1434 — 68 ; and Add. 706, written in the reign of 
'Eskender, A.D. 1478 — 94. Even manuscripts of the sixteenth century are rare, for the 
British Museum possesses only three which are actually dated, all of them belonging to 
the latter half of the century ; viz.. Orient. 534, 763, and 782, copied during the long 
reign of Sarza DcngSl, between A.D. 1563 and 1597. In short, the great bulk of our 
Ethiopic manuscripts are of the xvii*'', xviii* and xix"" centuries. It is only their archaic 
form and aspect which at first misleads even the practised eye. When we find a volume 
that is actually dated in the year of Christ 1594 (equivalent to our A.D. 1601-2), gravely 
ascribed by scholars of repute to the twelfth century (see p. 311, note), we may judge 
what reliance is to be placed upon the fanciful dates frequently assigned to Ethiopic 
manuscripts. 

As few persons know anything of the chronology of Abyssinia, it may not be out 
of place to insert here a list of the Kings of Ethiopia, with their dates, from the 
time of Yekuno Amhlk, which was kindly compiled for me in 1873 by my friend 
Professor von Gutschmid of Jena, one of the most accurate and learned historians of 
the time. In spelling the names I have chiefly followed the authority of Orient. 821. 
The baptismal name of each king, when known, is given first, his regnal name or names 
after it. 

1. Tasfii 'lyasus, Yekuno 'Amlak, A.M. 6762—77, A.D. 1270—1285.

of the Ethiopic Biblical Manuscripts in the Royal Library 
of Paris, etc. (London, 1823). 

t To the same period belongs a beautiful copy of the 
Gospels, one of the treasures of the Imperial Public 
Library at St. Petersburg, written A.D. 1426, when 
Isaac, Gabra Maskal, was king, Gabriel patriarch of 
Alexandria, and Bartholomew 'abuna or metropolitan of 
Ethiopia. See Bulletin scientifique de I'Academie Im- 
periale des Sciences, t. iii., p. 150, where this manuscript 



is described in detail by that illustrious scholar B. von 
Dorn. 

I This is not in accordance with Orient. 821 (see 
p. 316), in which manuscript Bahr 'Asgad is a predecessor 
of Yekuno 'Amlak, whilst 'AgbC'a Seyon's eldest son is 
called Senfa 'Ar'ed.

adds here that of Sab'a 'Asgad.

IV. In outward appearance an Ethiopic manuscript much resembles a Greek or Syriac 
manuscript of far greater age, say of the x"* or xii* century. On this subject the reader 
should consult the preface to M. D'Abbadie's Catalogue Eaisonne of his own collection, 
one of the valuable results of his long residence in Abyssinia ; but I may be allowed to 
reproduce some of his observations, supplementing them now and then from my own 
experience. 

The material on which the manuscripts are* written is a coarse vellum, or rather 
parchment, manufactured, according to D'Abbadie, from goatskin or sheepskin, the former 
being used for larger and finer books, the latter for those that are smaller and of a com- 
moner description. Such tomes as the great Seneksars (e. g,, nos. ccxxxii. — ccxxxv.) and 
the Hawl (nos. cccxlviii. — cccL) must have cost the lives of whole flocks, since the hide of 
a single animal could not supply more than one skin or two leaves of such size. Paper 
does not seem to have come into use before the close of last century, and was even then 
not extensively employed. 

The quires {terdzdt) consist, as a rule, of five skins or ten leaves, the writing being in two 
or three columns, according to the size of the volume. Only small manuscripts have single 
columns. The quires are usually numbered with arithmetical figures (i. e., Greek letters) at 
the top of the first page, in the left-hand corner. The ink is of good quality, and obviously 
manufactured from the ordinary ingredients, gallnuts, green vitriol, gum arable and water. 
Eor rubrication and ornament the scribes use various pigments or paints, chiefly red, less 
frequently blue, green and yellow. Their pen is the ordinary oriental kalam or reed 
(•flCO : > here), which they are wont to try on the blank leaves at the beginning and end, 
making use for this pui'pose of the introductory formula 11 fl**" : IhrU : etc., or of the words 
AX^ : -flCO : , fat'ina bere\ "trial of the pen," or -flC^ : UITJE: , here sandy* "a good 
pen." The volumes are firmly stitched with sinews, and placed between stout wooden 
boards. Metal covers appear to be a great rarity (see Orient. 728). The boards are 
covered with morocco leather, of Arabian or native manufacture, tooled with crosses 
and other ornamental devices. The inner side of the boards is partially covered by 
the overlapping of the outer leather, the space in the centre being lined with a covering of 
brocade, striped silk, or cotton cloth, according to the means or taste of the possessor. 
Sometimes, in small books, a fragment of looking-glass is inserted. The volume thus 
bound is placed in a mdhdar or case, of roughly prepared skin, furnished with a cover and 
straps, wherewith to hang it up or sling it round the neck of the owner. 

* Not the proper name of a scribe, as has sometimes been supposed. 



3t PREFACE. 

Fine manuscripts must have been at all times an expensive luxury in Abyssinia. 
Hence it is that so many of the volumes now in the British Museum were written 
for kings and queens, either for their own use or as presents to churches which they 
built and endowed. 

V. To determine the age of an undated Ethiopic manuscript is by no means easy; and 
I have therefore much pleasure in directing the attention of the reader to the series of 
excellent autotypes accompanying this catalogue, from the study of which he may 
derive some useful hints. 

In the fifteenth century (Plates I., II., III.) the handwriting is more angular than at 
a subsequent date. Observe, for example, the forms of the letters O, UJ, P, K, >*. *, and n™, 
especially in Plate I. Remark likewise the curve in one limb of H (Plate I., col. 1, 11. 1, 
7, 9, etc.), and the curious shape of O (Plate I., col. 1, 1. 4; col. 2, 11. 8, 16). Further, 
notice the angular form of the vowels in •¥• (Plate I., col. 1, 1. 1) and * (Plate II., col. 1, 
11, 1, 7). A sure mark of antiquity is the absence of the connecting stroke in A", giving 
the form te. Both forms may occur in one and the same manuscript ; and A" may be 
found quite early in the fifteenth century (as in Plate I.) ; but I venture to say that rtp will 
never be found subsequently to that century. Another mark of antiquity is the use, as 
in Plate II., of small marginal figures (consisting of red and black dots) to mark the end 
of verses or sentences in the text ; and the employment of the crux ansata -^ (see D'Ab- 
badie's Catal., p. 64) and similar figures by way of ornament. 

The writing of the sixteenth century (Plates lY. and Y.) is very different in appear- 
ance from that of the fifteenth. It is more rounded in many of its forms, and, in the 
examples known to me, is decidedly small and delicate. 

The seventeenth century (Plates YI., YII., YIII.) presents us with the Ethiopic 
characters in their most elegant shapes. The pictures of this and the preceding epochs 
are faint reminiscences (how very faint !) of Byzantine art.* 

The eighteenth century (Plates IX., X., XI.) exhibits but little falling off in penman- 
ship during its earlier half, but after the time of 'lyasu II. a rapid deterioration becomes 
manifest. The paintings of this century, as exemplified in Plates X. and XI., are aU copied 
from European models, namely coarse woodcuts, imported no doubt, in the first instance, 
by Roman Catholic missionaries. Some of these I have found pasted in volumes of the 
collection (see p. 42, col. 2, and p. 54, col. 2). The colouring is on a level with the rest of 
the design and execution. 

During the latter half of the eighteenth century there is a marked decline in the 
penmanship of the Abyssinian scribes, and the present century (Plates XII. and XIII.) 
exhibits no improvement. The writing is scratchy, and unless traced with care (as in the 
examples selected) by no means clear and legible. In particular, such forms as fl and fl, 
1*1 and ""l or l"", fL and n., and the like, are often hard to distinguish at a glance. 

YI. A detailed description of the plates, especially in regard to their colouring, may 
perhaps not be unacceptable. 

* Such pictures are usually covered with pieces of cloth, sewed to the leaves. 



PREFACE. xi 

In Plate I. the marks at the end of a paragraph (col. 1, 1. 6) or sentence (col. 1, II. 4, 
14; col. 2, 11. 3, 5, etc.) are made up of red and black dots and strokes. The word AA.IIA : 
iu col. 1, 11. 7, 8, is rubricated. In col. 1, 1. 14, (DJEirLA : is written over an erasure. Tliis 
plate is of the size of the original, which belonged at one time to king Zar'a Ya'kob. 

Plate II. is also full-size. The ornament in col. 1 is coloured red and white. The 
marks at the end of sentences or paragraphs, and the corresponding figures on the margins, 
consist, as before, of red and black dots and strokes. The name of yO^fl -. in col. 1, 
1. 1, is rubricated; and so are lines 3, 5, and 7, as well as the arithmetical figure 5 in 1. 9. 
The manuscript was written for king Zar'a Ya'kob. 

Plate III. is likewise fuU-size. Lines 1, 3 and 5 are rubricated right across the page. 
The word 4.fl/\Kfi : in col. 1, 11. 8, 9, and the arithmetical figure C in col. 2, 1. 8, are 
also in red. The ornament at the top is coloured not disagreeably with red, yellow, green 
and blue paints. The manuscript was written in the reign of 'Eskender. The writing on 
the right-hand side is of recent date; above we r§ad d.X\ -. 'flC.O -. , "trial of the pen;" 
and below, ^^A : 4.lXAKi1 : H^K,tl -. "^K^^i. : «%A9o : , "acts of Fasiladas, belonging 
to the (church of the) Holy Saviour of the World." 

Plate IV. is very slightly reduced in size. The manuscript was written in the twenty- 
fifth year of the reign of Sarza Dcngel. Sentences are terminated, as usual, by red and 
black dots. In col. 3, U. 7, 8, 17 and 18 are rubricated, as is also the name "^Ir^fl : in 
1.20. 

Plate V. is likewise slightly reduced. It is taken from a manuscript which was 
written during the same reign as the previous one. Marks of interpunction at the end 
of sentences are red and black, and so is the dotted line in col. 1, after which there are 
two lines of rubric. In col. 1, 1. 19, two words are written over an erasure. The position 
of the numerals which mark the quire, in the middle of the page, is less frequent ; 
generally they are in the left-hand corner. Catchwords, of which we have here an example, 
are rare. 

Plate VI. is somewhat reduced in size, from a manuscript which was written for 
Hamalmala Wark, the mother of king Susenyos. These names are rubricated in col. 1, 
11. 4 — 6; as are also the name of the Virgin Mary, "^C.P9" : in 1. 9 ; the numeral 6 in 
11. 7, 12, 19 ; and the first two lines of the column. The interpunction is with red and 
black dots as usual. 

Plate VII. is considerably reduced ; it is from a manuscript written in the reign of 
Pasiladas. Interpunction (col. 1, 1. 2), red and black dots. Heading, and the smaller 
writing on the picture, rubricated. The left-hand compartment of the picture shows us 
the aged and blind priest Yohannes, praying to a picture of the Mother and Child. The 
right-hand compartment exhibits the effigy of the Virgin suddenly becoming animated ; 
milk flows from her breast, wherewith she touches the eyes of the priest, who imme- 
diately recovers his sight, at the age of 100, and lives for twenty-one years after- 
wards ! The frame of the picture is coloured red and yellow, with black lines; 
tlie garments of the figures are red, yellow and blue; the flesh-tint is yellow, shaded 

with red. 

i2 



xii PREFACE. 

Plate VIII. is reduced by about one-third ; it is from a manuscript which was written 
at the end of the reign of Faslladas. Interpunction as before ; col. 1, 11. 2 — 4, rubricated. 
The heading of the picture, and the writing on it, are also in red. The picture represents 
the nailing of our Lord to the Cross. On the right stand the Virgin Mary, Salome, and 
Mary the mother of Joses, with other figures ; on the left, the Roman centurion and his 
soldiers. The dresses are painted red, yellow and blue, with black or red stripes and 
yellow or red spots. In front are nails and pincers (coloured blue), and a basket con- 
taining ropes (in outline only). The cross is tinted with sepia; the ground of the 
picture is white. 

Plate IX. is slightly reduced ; it is from a manuscript written in the reign of Tostos, 
whose name is in rubric, col. 1, 1. penult. ; col. 2, 11. 5, 6. The first two lines of col. 2 are 
also in red. Interpunction as usual. 

Plate X. is very slightly reduced; it is from a manuscript of the reign of Bakafa. 
Interpunction as before. The names of the Virgin Mary, king Bakafil, and the monk 
Isaac are rubricated, col. 1, 11. 3, 4; col. 1, 1. 5; and col. 2, 1. 1. In col. 2, 1. 6, two words 
are written on an erasure. The picture sets forth another edifying miracle, namely, how 
the Virgin Mary issued from her picture and spoke to the monk Isaac, who had worshipped 
her for seven years, promising that in three days he should be with her. The border of 
the picture is red with a white stripe. Its ground, above and below, is green ; in the 
middle, yellow. The Virgin wears a crimson dress and blue mantle, shaded with black ; 
the Child is clad in a yellow garment with red spots. The glory of the Virgin is orange 
and yellow, with a yellow cross below it ; that of the Child, yellow. The chair is red. 
The kneeling figure of the saint is clothed in an upper garment of green, shaded with 
black ; the lower garment is crimson. The recumbent figure has an upper garment of 
blue, shaded with black ; the lower garment is red, with a yellow pattern. The flesh-tints 
are red; the head-coverings black. 

Plate XI. is considerably reduced ; it is from a manuscript which was written for king 
'lyasu II. The writing at the top of the page is red. The upper ornament has a red 
border and yellow ground ; the flowers, etc., have black outlines, and are coloured red and 
wiiite or red and green. The first, third and fifth lines of writing are rubricated right 
across the page, the marks of interpunction being red and green, whereas elsewhere they 
are, as usual, red and black (e. g., col. 2, 1. 7 ; col. 3, 1. 6). The picture represents the 
Flight into Egypt, in two compartments ; to the left, the Holy Family are preparing 
to set out ; to the right, they are on their journey. The border of the picture is red and 
white ; the ground, yellow ; the trees, green. The dresses are red, green and blue, with 
white and yellow patterns. The flesh-tint is a dark brick-red. 

Plate XII. is full-size. It is taken from a manuscript which was written in the rei^-n 
of 'Egwala Seyon, whose name is rubricated in col. 1, 1. 2. The word (D^ChJ^ : in 1. 14 
and the numerals s S in 1. 15, are also in red. The marks of interpunction are red and 
black. Here again the signature of the quire is in the middle. 

Plate XIII. is somewhat reduced ; it is taken from a manuscript which was written 
for king Theodore. The ornamental device is coloured red, yellow, blue, green and white. 



PREFACE. xiii 

The first two lines of writing in both columns are red ; the next two, green ; the next two, 
red ; then come four lines of blue ; then, in succession, two lines of red, green, red, 
and blue. In the red lines the marks of interpunction are red ; in the green, red and 
green ; in the blue, red and blue. All the colours are exceedingly vivid. 

VII. In compiling this Catalogue, I have, in accordance with my instructions, fol- 
lowed the same general plan as in drawing up that of tlie Syriac manuscripts. Professor 
Dillmann's Catalogue has been my model in the present instance, as that of Messrs. 
Rosen and Forsliall was in the other. On the irksome task of correcting the proof-sheets 
I have bestowed much time and labour. Many things which to a reader may appear 
as mistakes are the actual readings of the manuscripts ; although it is only rarely that I 
have, for one reason or another, drawn attention to them. Tlie Indices Avill, I trust, he 
found full and satisfactory. In compiling them I have not thought it necessary, as I did 
in the case of the Syriac manuscripts, to insert the names of the scribes and owners, which 
are here of little or no importance. 

To Mr. Bond, the Keeper of the MSS., Dr. Rieu, the Keeper of the Oriental MSS., and 
Mr. E. M. Thompson, the Assistant Keeper of the MSS., my best thanks are due for much 
good advice and active assistance in reading the proof-sheets ; and the printers too deserve 
a word of praise for promptitude and care in the execution of their work. 

To myself the completion of this Catalogue is a source both of pleasure and regret. 
I am glad to have had the rare opportunity of cataloguing two of the finest collections of 
Oriental Manuscripts of their class in Europe, the Nitrian Syriac and the Magdala Ethiopic ; 
but I feel sorry that, with the completion of this latter work, the last link which bound 
me to the British Museum is broken ; that the service which began so long ago as 1861 
has now at length come to an end.

Sarza Dengel had then just conquered Mu-

one Za-Giyorgis, in the eighth year of the 
reign of 'lyasu II. and Walatta Giyorgis, for 
Dabra Zahai or the Church of the blessed 
Virgin Mary of Kweskwam. The dates, 
however, are astray, for A.M. 5500 is the 
date of the Nativity of our Lord, and A.D, 
1731 is the first year of 'lyasu's reign, which 
began in September 1730. His eighth year 
is 1737—38. 

Then follow salams to the blessed Virgin 
Mary for various hours, f. 133 b, and to the 
holy Trinity, f. 134 b. 

Another hand has appended prayers for 
the souls of various persons, whose names

factors of Dabra Zahai. hOC.^ : "XTK?* :

from the introduction and the above note, 
that the work was translated from Greek 
into Arabic by the deacon 'Abdallah 'ibn 'al- 
Facll 'ibn Abdallab, and that the present Ms. 
was written in the 15th (?) year of the reign 
of Fasiladas, A.M. 714 — , or about A.D. 
1647.

sius of Alexandria, f. 155 b. Then follow 
the anathemas of John of Broullos, f. 156 a. 
The Appendix commences on f. 157 a, but 
comprises only the extracts from Cyril and 
Gregory Nazianzen. Then follow, f. 161 a, 
the remaining anathemas of Gregory Thau- 
maturgus, Julius, etc. The five chapters of 
Theodosius are, however, omitted ; and the 
»o>tth«5. : (^o^C, : is also wanting. 

The colophon, f, 167 b, gives the names of 
the owner, (DAT : l.P'C.l.fl -., and the scribe, 
H"H''^?^>A:, the latter of Avhich also appears 
at the foot of f. 2 a.

Vellum, about 17| in. by 15| ; foil. 245, 
with two unnumbered blank leaves at the 
end ; 3 columns, 42 or 43 lines. Written in 
a fine hand, of the xvii"* cent. 

Mashafa Kaw'i, i. e., ^yjWl , a huge theo- 

if 

logical, moral and ascetic compilation, writ- 
ten in Greek by one Antiochus, of Dabra 
Sik, or the convent of Sik, to the east of 
Jemsalem (f. 16 a, col. 1). It was trans- 
lated into Arabic by Gabriel 'ibn Batrak, in 
the convent of S. Antony in the Arabian 
desert, A. Mart. 983, A.H. 665,=A.D. 1266 
— 67 (f. 20 a, col. 3) ; and from Arabic into 
Ethiopic by one Salik, A. M. 7074= A. D. 
1582 (foil. 245 b, coU. 2 and 3), " in the 20th 
year of king Sarza Dengel, the 15th of John 
(XI.), patriarch of Alexandria, and the 6th 
of Mark (III.), metropolitan of Ethiopia" 
(f. 245 6, col. 2). According to f. 245 b, col. 3, 
Antiochus was not the actual author of the 
book, but merely abridged (!) it from an older 
Greek work. The following are the intro- 
duction and contents, foil. 16 a — 20 a.

CCCLXXV. 

Vellum, about 14f in. by 12^ ; foil. 193, 
the last of which is mutilated; two columns; 
a fuU page of writing contains 18 lines, but 
usually there are only from 4 to 8 lines and 
a picture. Written in a fine hand, during 
the earlier part of the xviii* cent, (see below). 

The first volume of a work entitled Mas- 
hafa Madbal, or, as it is explained, GubaJe 
Mest'irdta Zamandf, " Collection of the Mys- 
teries of the Times," or more shortly, Mes- 
t'lra Zaman, " the Mystery of Time." It is 
nothing more than the Biblical history 
turned into verse.

According to the colophon, f. 46 a, which 
has heen much tampered with and altered, 
this work pretends to have heen translated 
from Coptic into Arahic, by Abu 'l-'Izz 
and Abu '1-Faraj, in the year of grace 409, 
in the reign of Gabra Maskal (Amda Seyon, 
A.D. 1314 — 44), when George was patriarch
