Specifically he focuses on the central element of lineage and royal blood lines that were prevalent at the time. He discusses heavily the intermixing of the royal families in order to preserve their own power and to ensure that their blood line survives. He does this by using each chapter to describe a specific family line, such as chapter 72 and 73 discussing the family tree of Constantine or chapters 74 and 75 to describe two separate seeds of Shem.
In chapter 90, we see a heavy emphasis on God's law and rules he sits forth for his believers to follow, which he presents by choosing the house of Jacob to reign as kings and to spread God's message. The author then describes Menelik's arrival at Axum , where he is feasted and Makeda abdicates the throne in his favor.
Menelik then engages in a series of military campaigns with the Ark, and "no man conquered him, on the contrary, whosoever attacked him was conquered" chapter After chapter 94, the author takes a step back and describes a more global view of what he had been describing in previous chapters. After praising the king of Ethiopia, the king of Egypt, and the book Domitius has found, which has established not only Ethiopia's possession of the true Ark of the Covenant, but that the Solomonic dynasty is descended from the first-born son of Solomon chapter Gregory then delivers an extended speech with prophetic elements chapters , forming what Hubbard calls a "Patristic collection of Prophecies": "There can be little doubt that chapters are written as polemic against, if not an evangel to, the Jews.
These chapters seek to prove by OT [Old Testament] allegories and proof-texts the Messianic purpose of Jesus, the validity of the Ethiopian forms of worship, and the spiritual supremacy of Ethiopia over Israel.
Based on the testimony of this colophon, "Conti Rossini, Littmann, and Cerulli , inter alios, have marked off the period to for the composition of the book. Other historians to consider the evidence date parts of it as late as the end of the sixteenth century, when Muslim incursions and contacts with the wider Christian world made the Ethiopian Church concerned to assert its character and assert Jewish traditions.
Many scholars doubt that a Coptic version ever existed, and that the history of the text goes back no further than the Arabic vorlage.

Uri Prosor; Diplomata Cultural Sr. Talua Lador-Fresher. This idea, vigorously presented, transforms Kaleb into a character entirely different from anything we can safely derive from other sources.
We have dealt already with the question of the Aksumite coinage and its overwhelming support for Kaleb 's Christian birth and descent as monarch of a land whose dynasty had been Christian for, almost two hundred years. We have also intimated the irrelevancy to the Kebra Nagast of a queen of an Arabian Sheba, the claimed Ethiopian descent being the vital factor.
The matter of Kaleb's 'passion for building' is equally tenuous, though some church building is both proven and intrinsically likely given the particular situation after the Himyar. However, it may in no way have distinguished Kaleb from his predecessors. We have no idea whether other kings of Aksum between Ezana and Kaleb might have been consumed with a similar desire to augment the churches in their territories, as later Ethiopian sovereigns often were.
The rock churches of Tigray, and of Lalibela, and the excavated basilicas of Aksumite times, seem to indicate clearly enough that church building, often on a substantial scale and in a medium of 11 55 maximum difficulty, was or was to become something of a national passion. Such later sovereigns, too — though in another and different Ethiopia, of which we have many more records — were also eager to suppress pagan cultic sites, and, despite their long Christian descent, showed every bit as much 'zeal, passion and intensity' over church building as the so-called 'convert' Kaleb Ella Asbeha.
Other points which Irfan Shahid cites to support his theory also seem to go beyond credibility. That the Byzantine ambassador, at Aksum, should have recorded his impressions of Kaleb 's elephant-drawn carriage, a cumbersome four-wheeled platform with a chariot-like upper structure, accompanied during the procession by musicians, is natural enough.
For him, the king of Aksum's appearance, covered in golden jewellery, borne aloft on this extraordinary conveyance, was something quite remarkable, and worth recording. To associate the vehicle with the Kebra Nagasfs Wagon of Zion and the Chariot of Ethiopia as 'important paraphernalia of the Ethiopian monarchy after the transference of the Ark and the Tabernacle from Jerusalem to Axum' is, once again, surely rather far-fetched. The strange vehicle was simply Kaleb 's state conveyance, brought forth successfully to impress the ambassador of great Byzantium.
Kaleb 's coins, pace Shahid, do not show the king holding a cross-crowned sceptre; they only show crosses above his head.
The coins with the sceptre, formerly attributed to 'Kaleb and his successors' are in fact pre-Kaleb anonymous issues. They thus date long before Kaleb, and provide, if anything, even stronger proof that the interim kings between Ezana and Kaleb were Christian.
The anti-Jewish attitude of the Kebra Nagast causes some concern to Shahid. It is envisaged as the result of. Hubbard regards chapters of the Kebra Nagast as 'written as polemic against, if not an evangel to, the Jews' Certainly, there is plenty of anti-Semitism in the Kebra Nagast.
Shahid's mention of Queen Judith that is, Gudit, a legendary queen who in the tenth century almost destroyed the Ethiopian kingdom seems to hint that he supposes her to have been a Jew. Yet as Conti Rossini long since indicated, there is no evidence whatsoe-ver for this attribution apart from late Ge'ez stories and occasional scholarly speculation from the time of Bruce to that of Guidi and Basset Lack of reaction to Queen Gudit in the Kebra Nagast, which Shahid supposes to be a supporting indication that the Kebra Nagast was written before her advent, is therefore not relevant.
It may not even be relevant to search so specifically for any particular moment of hostile dialogue between Jews and Christians as an inspiration for the anti- Jewish tendencies of the book. Ethiopian Christians, like Christians elsewhere, regarded themselves as the verus Israel, the True Israel that had succeeded by virtue of Christ's 12 56 death and their acceptance of his message to a heritage as the chosen people, a heritage that the Jews had rejected with the Messiah.
By the time that the Kebra Nagast, with its claim to Ethiopian possession of the Tablets of the Law later the Ark of the Covenant was included as well23 , was written, the very loss of the talisman was a weapon against the Jews, who would not have lost such treasures of their religion had they not been unworthy.
Thus the Christians regarded themselves as the new Israelites, and the Jews as rejected creatures, enemies of Christ.
It is not necessary to revert to the sixth century, to a recent or relatively recent encounter with a Jewish king, to justify inimical references to Jews in a book of the nature of the Kebra Nagast. Indeed, given the book's theme — the proving of the passing of the heritage from old Israel to the new Israel, in all its aspects — it would be extraordinary to encounter restraint towards the Jews. Every anti-Jewish remark strengthened the claim made by the exponents of the Solomonic succession in Ethiopia.
Nevertheless, as it happens there was a cause for anti- Jewish polemic during the reign of King Amda Seyon, the ruler in whose time the Kebra Nagast was 'translated' by Yeshaq and his colleagues though it was later augmented by editors and copyists in ways we can no longer properly interpret.
Ethiopian Christians had every reason to particularly resent Jews — or persons so identified by the texts, employing the term ayhud — in this reign, and doubtless for some unknown time before, for it was in early that the king of Ethiopia is first recorded as sending his armies to suppress the 'Jews' who were in control of- certain regions of the kingdom — regions just south of Tigray, and doubtless well-known to Yeshaq and his co-authors.
The text of the king's chronicle notes an especial element of betrayal, as contemporary Christians would have regarded it; 'originally, these people were Christians, but now they denied Christ like the Jews who crucified Him, and for this reason [Amda Seyon] sent an army to destroy them'. Yeshaq, though under the immediate control of Ya'ibika Egzi', would surely have known about and disapproved of these renegades, who thus supplied an extremely topical focal point for the anti- Jewish slant of his book.
It was only seven years after the end of the Intarta dynasty that Amda Seyon sent Saga Krestos to attack the 'renegades who are like Jews' in the districts of Samen, Waggara, Salamt and Sagade. The question of the 'image of Byzantium' in the Kebra Nagast, also raised by Shahid, is certainly an interesting one. Byzantium was still extant in Amda Seyon's day, but this does not seem to be the Byzantium to which the author of the Kebra Nagast refers.
It may even be irrelevant; the 'Rome' of the text is brought in as a Christian and inferior partner in the sharing of the oikoumene with Ethiopia, a story that belonged long ago in the past.
As we have noted, in the sixth century no one was likely to have believed this. The 13 57 division of the world at Jerusalem between Kaleb and Justin is another part of the myth, deriving, one supposes, from the reported community of interest of the two empires over the Himyar problem at the time of Justin and Justinian, or from typical apocalyptic and other religious literature, which saw Jerusalem as the centre of the world.
Earlier excursions into Roman history are also not difficult to explain, considering the interests of the compiler s of the Kebra Nagast, and its possible sources. The eventual defeat of the emperor of Rome, specified in KN as Marcian Marcianus, , by a Persian king, is another error by the compiler. The insertion of the name of 'Marcian the Apostate' is easily comprehensible in the context; he was the Roman emperor most worthy of detestation to monophysite Christians because it was in his reign that the fourth ecumenical council, that of Chalcedon, was held, which rejected monophysitism.
However, the compiler confused Marcian, whose reign was peaceful, with other Roman or Byzantine emperors who suffered defeats from the Persians. There were many of these.
The most conspicuous might be Heraclius, in whose reign the Holy Cross itself was captured and taken to Persia. Since the text mentions that 'the king shall carry him away, together with his horse', one might wonder if even a figure from so long ago as the time of Emperor Valerian, a vigorous persecutor of Christians, defeated and captured by Shapur I of Persia in AD, was meant.
Valerian died in captivity, and his skin, dyed purple, the Roman imperial colour — hence the name for the violet-coloured valerian flower — and stuffed with straw, was preserved in Persia. The compiler of the Kebra Nagast evidently had some source-books at hand, perhaps an ecclesiastical history or the work of John of Nikiu, but he seems to have confused the different events and the time scale. If a contemporary or near- contemporary had been writing about the defeat of a Roman emperor at the hands of a Persian king, surely he would have known the name of the two protagonists, instead of offering Marcian and 'Harenewos'.
Even if, as Shahid suggests, Harenewos might mean Anushravan, Khusrau I , who sacked Antioch in , it is ludicrous to associate him with Marcian, and one cannot really expect that a sixth or even seventh century chronicler would have done so.
However, there is more to this, a Marcion-Irenaeus parallel which Shahid has missed.
Marcion, the second century Gnostic heretic to whom Polycarp referred as 'the firstborn of Satan' , was included with other Gnostics in the refutation of Gnosticism contained in the treatise Adversus haereses Against Heresies of St.
Irenaeus c. Thus the two names cited by the Kebra Nagast figured in a religious struggle, in which Irenaeus was the victor. The Kebra Nagast, very far from being well informed on current affairs in the sixth century, is in fact thoroughly mired down in a strange confusion of emperors, saints and heretics from the relatively distant past.
These chapters certainly refer to Kaleb, Justin and the Himyar war at the end of the first quarter of the sixth century, and the information, with some confusion, probably does derive ultimately from an historical work written at that period or some time later.
Such a work may well have been consulted by the compiler of the Kebra Nagast many centuries afterwards, when he was seeking useful material to insert in his great work on the Ethiopian monarchy. The information in KN 1 17 is far too weak, far too vague, to justify placing the Kebra Nagast story of Solomon, the queen of Sheba, and the Ark of the Covenant, as early as the sixth or seventh century.

This may somehow reflect the mediaeval Ethiopians' preoccupation about cyclical and millennarial concerns; in a copy of the Ethiopian computus, or Mashafa hasab, part of which Getatchew Haile translated in this article, the author was worried about what would happen the end of the world at the completion of years.
In the same document, we are told p. The rest from here to the end of the world is 84 years. If we subtract from to find the date of the beginning of the reign of Gabra Masqal, we arrive at EC; the same date as in the Kebra Nagast, the beginning of the thirteenth cycle, but far too late for any son of Kaleb. Getatchew Haile, by elaborate explanations, tries to solve the problems in the calculations, but there are so many manifestly wrong dates in this text that it does not convince as a base for altering our ideas about the dating of Aksumite rulers, whether real or legendary.
