About-

The Catalog of the Ethiopic Manuscript Imaging Project (EMIP), volume 2, provides a full catalog for EMIP codex numbers 106 through 200, and magic scrolls 135 through 284. Each catalog entry for the codices provides a full physical description, a listing of contents (with incipits), illuminations, varia (known works added later), notes on codicology and scribal practice, as well as a full quire map. Opening articles provide an introduction to the collection and its codicology, and an introduction to this set of Ethiopian scrolls of spiritual healing. Seven indices (general, works in the codices, names in the codices, miniatures in the codices, scribal practices, works in the scrolls, and names in the scrolls) provide quick access for researchers.
