Dimā Giyorgis Monastery

One of the most famous monasteries in Gojjam, Dimā Giyorgis possesses a correspondingly large library, surpassing 150 manuscripts. Approximately 80 codices were microfilmed by UNESCO in 1970 and a similar number digitized for EMDA more recently, albeit with considerable overlap between the two projects.
