Healing scrolls combine prayers written in Ge'ez, the liturgical language of the Ethiopian Orthodox Church, with astrological and mystical symbols. They are made for individuals suffering from recurring illness and misfortune. Prepared by clerics called dabtara, scrolls are fashioned from parchment and extend the length of the patient. They are worn close to the body, rolled in a small, leather case, or hung near the bedside where the patient can gaze into its healing imagery.
