You haven't answered my question. Again did your ancestors lived in that same are for the past 1200 years?
Btw, does it really matter how many assyrians or Persians did I know growing up? what's your point?
Again, the crusaders were inspired by lalibela churches. .
Btw, during the axumite empire the country was called Ethiopia NOT Abyssinia!
Tigre can not claim axum history either . Anyway, why did queen sheba's son was called Menilk? Amaharic word?
What does exactly mean Debtera? Is it tigrigna? Geez or amharic
There is 2200 years related to Tigre-Tigrigni on stones, names of villages, towns..etc
There are laws regional laws of land tenure, marriages, rulers, written in Tigrigna from 700 years. The Eritreans have it in Museum now.
I did not say how many Assyrians you knew, but what did you know about them. I bet is very little if any at all.
Axum was called Axum ...You can refer to Roman empire or Persian empire or Assyarian empire...etc
In the most authoritative and used as authentic books about the Roman empire "The decline and fall of the Roman Empire" its refered as Axum and later Abyssinia. The official name for today's Ethiopia was Abyssinia even as member state of the league of nations during Empress Zewditu and Hatse Haileslassie later. Was only during the second world war when current Ethiopia became official, formal, diplomatic...etc.
I have no idea that Menelik is Amhara name lol. I read from an Italian officers writing about Adwa battle and one of the commanders of the Eastern Tigray army (Ras Siyum mengesha as oppsed to Ras Allula led army) was named Minelik and his original town is Adigrat. He was older than Hatse Menelik (crown name only not personal name) by age. But you and I will not conclude this. Menelik the oldest known Minelik was born in Hamasien that we can agree since there is proof for it.
Debtera is a kind of masters degree education level that takes about 4-5 years after regular priesthood. Its from Oritawian (kind of Jewish but older and slightly different). The Jewish themselves must have inherited the High priest system from previous. Literally it means scribe of the highest order or the order of scribes. Its a whole system that has its own rules.
For example before the rule went to Shiwa, every single Debtera has to have had part of his education and practice done in Gojjam. Then Shiwa started annointing Debtera or recognizing debters that did not complete their education, never been to Gojjam..etc Now the name/function DEBTERA is so soiled defiled and politicized in Ethiopia has become Toxic, unlike the aura, respect it had in Abyssinia. I am sure Bwendimu would shoot me if I said I am Debtera now. Has been completely destroyed as one of our greatest heritage.
