Bibliographic reference: Pereira, F. M. Esteves (ed.). Le livre d'Esther: version éthiopienne (Patrologia Orientalis ix.1), Paris, 1913.


This is an internet image version of the Ethiopic Book of Esther.  It follows Francisco María Esteves Pereira’s (1854–1924) critical edition published in Paris in 1913.  Pereira’s Ethiopic text was scanned (including its French translation).

The Book of Esther (in its Hebrew version) contains 10 chapters; the Greek version, on which the Ethiopic is based, has 6 additional fragments, numbered A to F. Each chapter (and each additional fragment) is directly accessible from the main menu.

Pereira’s Introduction is available here as PDF (0.3MB).
