Information and Notes: Kebra Nagast


Bibliographic reference: Bezold, Carl (ed.). Kebra Nagast. Die Herrlichkeit der Könige. München, 1905.


This is a digitized version of the Kebra Nagast or The Glory of Kings, Ethiopia's national epic.  It follows Carl Bezold’s critical edition published in Leipzig in 1905. Bezold’s work was digitized in 1995 by Michal Jerabek, Prague, in the “Library of Ethiopic Texts” which is no longer available.  I converted Jerabek’s version to Unicode, cleaned it up, corrected it a bit and formatted it.  Please read Jerabek’s Copyright Notice:
