The Ethiopian Legends of Our Lady Mary the Perpetual Virgin and Her Mother Hanna translated by Sir. E.A. Wallis Budge
“Legends of Our Lady Mary the Perpetual Virgin and Her Mother Hanna (1922),” contains very many gems, of both spiritual and mystical content that is sadly missing in Gentile (or, European) Christianity. It treats both background and culture of the Ethiopian [Black] VIRGIN MARYAM, the Mother of the Saviour, and her mother, HANNA as well. Such subjects of Early Christianity have been almost entirely lost, and sadly perverted in the Western, or Romanish [“Catholic”] Church. Some scholars even have dismissed the veracity its living testimony, basically for one reason: because it is Ethiopian, and that means and meant “Black ,” or “African.”
“The Legends of Our Lady Mary the Perpetual Virgin,” is a groundation for all of us, but especially, and most emphatically – for Daughters of Zion, whom we call Our Sisters, and like Our Lady, to be honoured as holy mothers in RASTAFARI.
