Sergew HableSelassie - Ancient and Medieval Ethiopian History to 1270 (1972)
Their primacy is not through birth or through kingship but through receiving Baptism and Holy Communion. Citation: Scrinium 12, 1 ; After a brief introduction into the historicity of the two protagonists, I will shift to the text itself, present the currently available text witnesses and evaluate the summarized content of the work. The article ends with a conclusion. Since if at all only very few original literary works composed during the Aksumite era have been discovered so far, 16 it is unlikely that the path along which these enigmatic names came to be remembered as those of two great kings whose conversion laid the foundation of Christian culture in Ethiopia can be traced.
The article covers the prehistory and history of Ethiopia from its emergence as an empire under the Aksumites to its current form as the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia as well as the history of other areas in what is now Ethiopia such as the Afar Triangle. Due to migration and imperial expansion, it grew to include many other primarily Afro-Asiatic -speaking communities, including Oromos , Amhara , Somalis , Tigray , Afars , Sidama , Gurage , Agaw and Harari , among others. One of the earliest kingdoms to rise to power in the territory was the kingdom of D'mt in the 10th century BC, which established its capital at Yeha. In the first century AD the Aksumite Kingdom rose to power in the Tigray Region with its capital at Aksum and grew into a major power on the Red Sea , subjugating Yemen and Meroe and converting to Christianity in the early fourth century. The Aksumite empire fell into decline with the rise of Islam in the Arabian peninsula which slowly shifted trade away from the Christian Aksum and it eventually became isolated then economy slumped and Aksum's commercial domination of the region was over[  ]. The Aksumites gave way to the Zagwe Dynasty who established a new capital at Lalibela , before giving way to the Solomonic Dynasty in the 13th century.
Layers of Time pp Cite as. During medieval times the highlands from Wag and Lasta southward through Shoa, along the Rift Valley, and on to the southernmost regions of modern Ethiopia were politically, culturally and economically incorporated into the Ethiopian cultural region and, for the most part, into the Ethiopian state. This happened during the thousand years when Gibbon held that the Ethiopians were sleeping. They were doing nothing of the kind, but they had changed their priorities from the north to the south. Heads of the church came from Egypt and there was contact with the Patriarch of Alexandria through correspondence 2 and occasional embassies; but the bulk of the political, economic and religious energy which Ethiopians expended during the medieval period was concentrated on southward expansion.
