Authenticity in African Cultural Heritage: Ethiopian and Eritrean Heritage in the Bodleian Library

Dr Mai Musie and Dr Jacopo Gnisci led a project at the The Bodleian Libraries in Oxford, who care for a collection of manuscripts and icons from Ethiopia and Eritrea, including illuminated gospels in Ge’ez, the KƏbrä Nägäst, and The Harp of Mary, to work with Ethiopian and Eritrean communities to find out more about these precious objects and co-create events which will share them with the public. They have recently been received a TORCH Heritage Seed Fund award to continue the project.
