Abstract:This article summarizes the results of research at Dbr Zyt, one of the historical sites discovered by the project Ethio-SPARE (Hamburg University, Hiob Ludolf Centre for Ethiopian Studies) in Gulo Mkda, East Tigray, Ethiopia. It presents different types of historical evidence - including old church buildings, an inscription, and the church library, focusing on an analysis of the fragments of the so-called 'old Golden Gospel' of Dbr Zyt, written presumably by the same scribe as the one of the well-known manuscript from the Vatican Library, Vath. Aeth. 25, which was recently dated to a time prior to the mid-14th century. Bibliogr., notes, ref., sum. [Journal abstract]
