peace and hotep,
priest asukile adigun adofo, it can only stop when there is balance.
the text of this edition of the kebera nagast was selected from a portion of a book entitled 'the queen of sheba and her only son menyelek. first published in english in 1922, the translator, dr. E. A. WALLIS BUDGE(*egyptologist), was scholar of christ's college, cambridge. he was also the tyrwhitt hebrew scholar at christ's college and keeper of egyptian and assyrian antiquities at the british museum. of the book, dr budge wrote: the kebra nagast is a great storehouse of legends and traditions, some historical and some purely folklore character, derived from old testament and later rabbinic writings, and from egyptian(both pagan and christian), arabian, and ethiopian sources. of the early history of the compilation and its maker, and of its subsequent editors we know nothing, but the principal groundwork of its earliest form was the traditions that were current in syria, palestine, arabia, and egypt during the first four centuries of the christian error".
