    The Garima Gospels: Now the World’s Oldest Illustrated Christian Work?

    Could the 1600 year old manuscript found in a remote Ethiopian monastery be the world’s oldest illustrated Christian work? Having been re-dated, the Garima Gospels are indeed so say the experts: Originally thought to be from around the 11th century, new carbon dating techniques place the Garima Gospels between 330 and 650 AD.

    Ethiopian Christ icon found 500 years on

    A 15th century Ethiopian icon of the infant Christ child sitting on his mother's knee discovered after it was cleaned by a British charity.
    The hugely important and stunning painted wood panel is now visible in its original coloured glory, showing a pale-faced Jesus with black curly hair and rosy cheeks.

    In the Spirit of Sankofa,

    .......yvw sister Proverbs31Woman, glad you found this.

    This find, the Garima Gospels and oldest to date, dispels the white Christ myth, in my view.

    Peace In,
