Introduction to the Text

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingForeword/postscript


Regarding the number of existing external sources on the history of Ethiopia, the period between the second half of the sixteenth century and the early seventeenth century is an extraordinary moment. During those decades, several important groups of Jesuit missionaries were active in the country, working intensively to report on their endeavor to advance the Catholic faith. This book represents a collection of some of the more interesting texts that they wrote.
