9783643904089: The Story of Darasge Maryam: The history, buildings and treasures of a church compound with a painted church in the Semen Mountains (Kunst: Forschung und Wissenschaft)

In the Semen Mountains in northern Ethiopia, the painted church in Darasge Maryam has been witness to a remarkable event in Ethiopian history. Built by Daggazmac Webe in the 1850s for his coronation, it was not the venue for Webe's coronation, but for the coronation of Tewodros II, who had snatched victory from Webe. However, the art (paintings, liturgical objects, and a very precious illuminated manuscript book of Revelation), the commissions, and gifts by Webe, can still be seen there today. This book documents the history of the Darasge Maryam church compound. (Series: Art: Science and Research / Kunst: Forschung und Wissenschaft - Vol. 2)
