About Us

The ethiopicist.org website is established in honour and commemoration of the Conquering Lion of the Tribe of Judah, Haile Sellassie I, Emperor of Ethiopia. The main goal of the ethiopicist.org is to serve as an online repository for the following publications, Selected Speeches 1918 to 1967 and the Important Utterances 1963 to 1972. Another important goal of the ethiopicist.org is to publish and propagate the 20th Century Reign of Haile Sellassie I, as stated in our mission statement. These publications offer a broadly based selection of the Emperor's speeches to form the core contents for this website. These two wonderful compilations were first published by the Imperial Ethiopian Ministry of Information in 1967 and 1972 respectively to mark the Emperor's 75th and 80th birthday. We hope you find browsing this website interesting and worthwhile. We welcome your comments and contributions on how to further develop, improve and enhance this project.
