AFRICAN ZION: THE SACRED ART OF ETHIOPIA. Marilyn Heldman et al. Walters Art Gallery, Baltimore, 1993.

(170 col.). 28 x 23 cm. LC 93-60835 ISBN 0300058159 In English.
A major survey of the little-studied art of Christian Ethiopia, this scholarly catalogue features excellent reproductions and detailed analyses of some 120 icon paintings, illuminated manuscripts, coins and processional crosses dating from the 3rd through the 18th century, most of the works drawn from Ethiopian ecclesiastical and public collections. Thirteen essays explore the political, religious and cultural history of the Christian Ethiopian empire, discussing such topics as the relationship between church and state in the medieval period, the coinage of the Aksumite kingdom, the dominant role of the cult of Mary, the development of Ethiopic literature, and the dating and decoration of Ethiopian manuscripts.
