Ethiopian canon tables, Canon table, Walters Manuscript W.838, fol. 1v

This fragmentary manuscript, comprised of four canon tables spread over one bifolium, would originally have been the introductory pages of a fourteenth- or early fifteenth-century Gospel Book. Written in the Lake Tana region of Ethiopia, the pages contain canons I-V, which relate the concordance of the Gospels through a chart in which each number corresponds to a Gospel passage, a system originally created by Eusebius of Caesarea in the early fourth century. The numbers here, in keeping with a long tradition, are placed within an arcade of brightly decorated columns and arches. Common within Ethiopian canon table decoration are the curtains, which hang from the sides of the columns, and the interlace-filled arches adorned with birds. These pages provide an excellent example of Ethiopian canon table illumination from the early Solomonic period.

  2. Hey, I appreciate your writing. Four com-positional tables included two sections and one extensive curve with winged animals above, finished with geometric and hitch designs in green, yellow, and orange; engravings and ordinance numbers in dark ink. This is so beautiful. Thanks for sharing. Best of luck.

  7. I have experienced most of mobile platforms. IOS and BBOS are best in terms of efficiency and security. BB is best in productivity. IOS is good too. Both have no problem of any bloatware. Windows is next good in terms of efficiency, but iphones are next to perfect for business and personal use to get more news feeds about iPhones and Apple's new released stay connect with CydiaNerd.
