Dabra Ḍaḥāy Qeddus Mārqos Church

Located 300 km northwest of Addis Ababa along the road to Gondar, Dabra Mārqos is the primary church in the eponymous town, which has been the most important in Gojjam for much of the past two centuries. Many of the manuscripts microfilmed by UNESCO in 1969-1970 were again digitized for EMDA, with a total of 118 discrete items represented between these two projects. Around 150 volumes are held by the church library.
