Фридман И. А. К вопросу о времени, месте и обстоятельствах создания «Жития Абрыхи и Ацбыхи» // Вестник ПСТГУ. Серия III: Филология. 2013. Вып. 5 (35). С. 109-115.
The article is devoted to a hitherto unpublished Ethiopic hagiographical text — the Life of Abreha and Asbeha, a composition aiming at promoting the veneration of the royal brothers during whose reign, according to a later tradition, Aksum became the scene for the activity of St. Frumentius, the apostle of Ethiopia. Departing from the data furnished by the text itself as well as by other sources, the author puts forward suggestions concerning the dating of the Life, its place of origin as well as the circumstances which could very probably serve as a stimulus for composing the text

Фридман И. А. Староамхарский трактат "Виды творения"как одно из сочинений цикла "Красота творения" // Вестник ПСТГУ. Серия III: Филология. 2015. Вып. 5 (45). С. 70-78. DOI: 10.15382/sturIII201545.70-78
The article is devoted to a newly discovered and still unpublished Old Amharic manuscript treatise. The text bearing the title of “Kinds of the Creation” is, beyond any doubt, a part of a tradition united by the shared title of “Beauty of the Creation”, fairly widespread in Ethiopian manuscript lore. Texts belonging to this tradition are known in two languages, Ge’ez and Amharic, and are dedicated to the exegesis of the biblical account of the creation of the world and the first generation of humans. The unpublished treatise, principally following the same subject route as the more studied texts of “Beauty of the Creation”, at the same time represents a considerable number of textual variants, the greater part of which concern diff erent degrees of detail as well as wording while some of the variants are of a more substantial nature. A critical edition that would take into account the different readings in the two text witnesses of the treatise known at present and a commented translation of the text are in store.
