Blurb/Shorttext:
The study focuses on the traditional accounts on Makədda and Solomon. It is a study which bridges the gap between philology and folklore. It has historical, philological and folkloristic investigations based on a traditional national saga which had the power of shifting the center of political scenes in Ethiopia for over seven hundred years. The thesis used the Kəbrä Nägäst (English Version) - an extended narrative which was believed to be a factual document, as a basic manuscript and analyzed the oral, Biblical and Quranic accounts on the theme. Recent developments and embellishments of the central narrative are also considered in the thesis. Each change and/or corruption within parts of the narrative is considered paying special attention to the why of the changes. Philological and textual methods are employed as basic tools of investigation.
