Dersane Medhane Alem. [17th Century]

It is a composition of different stories pertinent to the life and deeds of Jesus Christ. It is used in the church as a prayer book.

It is a hardbound volume made from wood covered with damp leather. The leather is covered by cloth; and it is decorated with silver and gold. It has 164 folios. The codex was originally thought to include icons. This can be deduced from the blank folios left through out different pages in the codice. There are some icons which describe the deeds of Jesus Christ. There are colophons.

Coded by the monastery as G1-IV-276, the measurement of the manuscript is 41x36.5x7.5. Sewed together. Scribe: Wolde Rufael.
