보관 이력

This collection of Ethiopian codices were received in two separate donations. The first donation was by Robert Thompson and Brian Fargher. Robert N. Thompson lived and worked in Ethiopia in the late 1940s and through the 1950s for Serving In Mission (SIM) federal government in the 1960s, he arrived at TWU where he served as an administrator and lecturer. Thompson donated three Ethiopian codices to TWU Archives and Special Collections prior to 1995. The second donation was received by Brian L. Fargher who gifted the Psalms of David codex to the ACTS Library at TWU in 1993, having purchased the manuscript in Ethiopia in the 1950s. This codex was deposited in the TWU Archives and Special Collections around 2000.
