Funeral rites

The burial rite is contained in the Book of Ginnazat. The earliest known text dates from 1266 and contains offices for burial of clergy and monks. In this text the rite begins in the house with psalmody, husoyo, mazmoro or qolo. There is a procession to the church for a service of psalmody, readings, office of incense, rite of farewell and procession to the grave. Clergy to be buried are anointed. After burial there is a final prayer. The custom as witnessed in 1986 was that only the parish priest and close family attend the burial. The congregation disperse with the farewell.
