This contract is part of the EthioChrisProcess project, led by M.-L. Derat (Orient & Méditérannée, CNRS) and financed by the National Research Agency (ANR). This project studies three different moments in the Christianization process in Ethiopia (7th, 9th-10th and 11th-12th centuries), during which religious interactions crystallize, using a variety of documentary records: epigraphic sources, handwritten documentation, numismatics, iconography, archaeological remains, Arabic sources. Within this program, the Ethiopian Manuscript Archives electronic edition aims to make administrative documentation accessible and searchable. This project, coordinated by Anaïs Wion (CNRS, Institut des Mondes Africains) is currently developing by harmonizing its tools with those developed by the Beta Masaheft project (Hiob Ludolf Center, University of Hamburg).
The candidate will work under the direction of A. Wion (Institut des Mondes Africains, CNRS) and M.-L. Derat (O&M, CNRS).
Working time is at the CNRS from 38H30/week
