Manuscript 2 Print. Living tradition in Ethiopia

This film pays homage to Tesfa Gabre Selassie and his scholar printer Memhar Saifa. Their impact on the transmission of the literature Ethiopian Orthodox Twahedo Church into the 20th and 21st century is, to my mind second to none. They are responsible for the production of the popular versions that are in use in the Church today; shifting from manuscript versions to a standard printed version. They are also responsible for the translation of much of the church literature from Ge’ez (Old Ethiopic) to Amharic, making its content available to all.
