Publisher's Synopsis
These pages were excised by royal decree from the authorized 1611 King James version of the Bible. Originally recorded in the ancient Ethiopian language (Ge'ez) by anonymous scribes, The Red Sea Press, Inc. and Kingston Publishers now bring you a complete, accurate modern English translation of this long suppressed account.

Here is the most startling and fascinating revelation of hidden truths; not only revealing the present location of the Ark of the Covenant, but also explaining fully many of the puzzling questions on Biblical topics which remained unanswered up to today.

Reviews
"...(O)nly in the Kebra Nagast, and not in the Bible...the bold assertion is made...that the Ark had gone from Jerusalem to Ethiopia."

"...(H)ow could the most important Biblical object in the world end up in the heart of Africa...? The Kebra Nagast...with a great deal of weight and historical authenticity...offers a clear answer to this question...as Ethiopia's claim to be the last resting place of the lost Ark remains unchallenged..."

"...(T)he Kebra Nagast's audacious claim of a massive cover-up...(and) all information about the tragic loss of the Ark during Solomon's reign had been suppressed, which is why no mention is made of it in the Scriptures."

"...a great epic...a remarkable document ...erected above a solid foundation of historical truth."    ~Graham Hancock, The Sign and the Seal

Excerpt
"The KEBRA NAGAST, or the Book of the Glory of Kings of Ethiopia, has been in existence for at least a thousand years, and contains the true history of the origin of the Solomonic line of kings in Ethiopia. It is regarded as the ultimate authority on the history of the conversion of the Ethiopians from the worship of the sun, moon, and stars to that of the Lord God of Israel.

It was during the era of the European conquests and colonization of the African continent, that renewed interest by scholars in the legendary country of 'Prestor John' began. Fragmentary accounts and oral reports of a remote Christian kingdom in the heart of Africa amidst a sea of pagan nations, captured the imagination of several European explorers. Both Spain and Portugal hoped to find in this kingdom a possible ally against Islam and the rising power of the Ottomans.

One of the earliest collections of documents of the country of the 'Negus' (King) came through the writings of Francisco Alvarez, official envoy which Emanuel, King of Portugal, sent to David, King of Ethiopia, under Ambassador Don Roderigo De Lima. In the papers concerning this mission, Alvarez included an account of the King of Ethiopia, and a description in Portuguese of the habits of the Ethiopians, which was printed in 1533.

In the first quarter of the 16th century, PN Godinho published some traditions about King Solomon and his son Menyelek, derived from the KEBRA NAGAST. Further information about the contents of the KEBRA NAGAST was supplied by Baltazar Téllez (1595-1675), the author of the Historia General de Etiopía Alta (Coimbra, 1660). The sources of his work were the histories of Manuel Almeida, Alfonson Méndez and Jerónimo Lobo.

Among the most complete, and least known, translations of the KEBRA NAGAST, is the exhaustive work of Enrique Cornelio Agrippa (1486-1535) Historia de las cosas de Etiopía (Toledo, 1528)--a greatly amplified account. Agrippa was an alchemist, expert in magical sciences and Cabala, and physician to the King; he resided in the courts of Maximilian I and of Charles V; eventually he suffered imprisonment in Grenoble by order of Francis I, where he died."       ~Introduction
