The work is a studied cataloguing of volumes and manuscripts, which the Congregation of the Combonian Missionaries of the Heart of Jesus deposited in the Vatican’s Apostolic Library in 1989. This donation allowed the library to proceed with a suitable placement and recording of the entire, and very large, Combonian collection.

The work of re-organisation and the Codices Comboniani Aethiopici has made available an important font of information for the understanding of Ethiopian Christianity and, consequentially, of certain Ethiopian cultural roots.
