Information and Notes: Lamentations


Bibliographic reference: Bachmann, Johannes (ed.). Die Klagelieder Jeremiae in der aethiopischen Bibelübersetzung. Halle a.S., 1893.


This is an internet image version of the Ethiopic Book of Lamentations.  It follows Johannes Bachmannís critical edition published in Berlin in 1893. Johannes Bachmann, a German orientalist, lived between 1863Ė1894 (not to be confused with the better-known theologian of the same name, 1832Ė1888).

Bachmannís Ethiopic text was scanned (but not its back-translation into Greek). Each chapter is directly accessible from the main menu. Bachmannís Foreword follows.
