ETHIOPIAN SCROLLS, Ethiopia


*Ethiopian Scroll 5 was selected by the Fitchburg Museum and was donated to their permanent collection.

Ethiopia has been a Christian nation since the 4th century. These Coptic gospel texts are handwritten and illustrated on vellum, a fine parchment made from calfskin, lambskin, or kidskin. Although age is impossible to establish definitively, we believe they date from the 19th or early 20th century.
