Chapter Summary

This chapter is an interim report of the projected edition of the Ethiopian Anaphora of the Apostles, and contains two parts. The first part treats more general questions on the Ethiopian Anaphora of the Apostles. The second part is dedicated to the disclosure of the sources of the anaphora and dating it. There are about 20 Ethiopian anaphoras. The epiclesis of the Anaphora of the Apostles is a modification and an enlargement of the epiclesis in the so called Apostolic Tradition. With regard to the Anaphora of the Apostles, there never was the usual transition from orality to literality, rather it was vice versa. Once artificially redacted from literary sources, the anaphora has been in use in the Ethiopian liturgy and from then on undergone a process of primarily oral tradition, ranging up to the printed Ethiopian orthodox missals of the 20th century.

Keywords: Apostolic Tradition; epiclesis; Ethiopian anaphoras; Ethiopian liturgy; Ethiopian orthodox missals
