Ethiopian Bible is the oldest and complete bible on earth . The world’s earliest illustrated Christian book has been saved by a British charity which located it at a remote Ethiopian monastery. The incredible Garima Gospels are named after a monk who arrived in the African country in the fifth century and is said to have copied them out in just one day. Beautifully illustrated, the colours are still vivid and thanks to the Ethiopian Heritage Fund have been conserved. Abba Garima arrived from Constantinople in 494 AD and legend has it that he was able to copy the Gospels in a day because God delayed the sun from setting. The incredible relic has been kept ever since in the #Garima Monastery near Adwa in the north of the country, which is in the #Tigray region at 7,000 feet. Experts believe it is also the earliest example of book binding still attached to the original #pages The survival of the Gospels is incredible considering the country has been under #Muslim invasion, Italian invasion and a fire in the 1930s #destroyed the #monastery ’s church. They were written on goat skin in the early Ethiopian language of Ge’ez. Comment | Tag | Share Read Conscious Articles on our website. Link in Bio.
