Ethiopia – Don Bosco by Teresio Bosco translated into Tigrina

29 April 2019

(ANS - Addis Abeba) – In an effort to spread the charism of Don Bosco far and wide there has been the initiative of translating the writings of the great veteran Salesian historian Teresio Bosco into Tigrina, the official local language of Eritrea and the language spoken in the northern part of Ethiopia. 

The work was begun almost two years ago by Br. Berhane Teklemariam who took it up as a great challenge to do the translation work and at the same wanted to make this contribution to the Salesians of Eritrea which had been part of the Ethiopian Province in the beginning and had to be separated a few years ago due to various political reasons.

However, the new initiative was very well welcomed by the confreres on both sides, in Ethiopia and Eritrea, and the editing, printing and publishing was fulfilled by the Don Bosco Printing Press at Addis Abeba in Ethiopia.

The book, which has more than 400 pages, gives an almost literal translation of Teresio Bosco's work and will certainly help in spreading the Salesian charism in both the countries.
